The project is supported by the Department of Jobs, Enterprise & Innovation through IDA Ireland. The 20 new roles will be in SAP software and financial management.

General Manager of Endress+Hauser Ireland, Christophe Roche, said “We are proud that Ireland has been chosen as the location of this hub. The aim of the hub will be to support SAP users across Endress+Hauser in Ireland, and in 8 other countries across Europe to begin with. Our strong focus on innovation, R&D combined with the strong support from bodies such as the IDA makes Ireland the ideal place for such a hub. Choosing Ireland as the location for this hub also shows Endress+Hauser’s commitment to their operations in Ireland which will only grow in the future.”

Welcoming this announcement, Minister Mary Mitchell O Connor said that the decision by Endress + Hauser to locate this new operation in Kill, to complement the existing sales and service facility there is a strong vote of confidence in Ireland and in the skills of the Irish workforce.  “We have developed extensive expertise in software development  and financial management.  The decision to locate highly skilled positions in a town away from the main urban centres is very welcome and also reflects our enhanced communications infrastructure.  A key priority for the Government is to ensure  that high technology companies like Endress + Hauser have the right business environment to develop and expand, thereby helping to ensure that the benefits of our economic recovery are well dispersed.”
