N’ware, an expert in the field of Enterprise Resource Planning and business applications software, today announced the creation of 25 new roles with the establishment of its European HQ in Mountrath Co Laois.
This project is supported by the Irish Government through IDA Ireland.
Established in 1995 in Quebec, Canada, N’Ware offers feature-loaded software solutions for small to mid-size businesses (SMEs) or subsidiaries of large enterprise corporations. N’ware, with its main customer base located in North America and LATAM, supports clients in more than 25 countries. Already an SAP Gold partner in certain geographies, N’ware will be working on the provision of software sales & services to the EMEA region, from its temporary base at Bloom HQ in Mountrath.
Tánaiste and Minister for Enterprise Trade and Employment Leo Varadkar TD said: “Congratulations to the team at N’ware on this exciting new chapter. I’m really happy that N’ware has chosen Mountrath for its European headquarters, creating 25 new jobs in Laois. Our highly skilled workforce is just one of the reasons why Ireland is recognised as a global hub for leading software companies like N’ware. I wish the team the very best of luck.”
Minister of State Department of Finance with responsibility for Financial Services, Credit Unions and Insurance Sean Fleming TD said: “N’ware’s announcement today is a very positive development for Laois. It is further evidence of the benefits of locating in the regions outside Dublin where there is access to talent, lower operating costs, and higher staff retention rates. I would like to welcome N’Ware to Mountrath and I look forward to working with them over the coming years.”
This is a unique strategic initiative for N’ware Technologies, as it creates its EMEA headquarters in Ireland, to tap into Ireland’s renowned software ecosystem and service its expanding EMEA markets.
”When we were considering the location from where to drive our European expansion, the choice for Ireland was a clear one, both as a viable local market for a business that is very aligned to our company culture, as well as a launching pad to expand our business into the Europe Middle East and Africa region. Hiring our local Managing Director was an easy decision when we met Mark Rijke, who shares similar values and integrity that is so deep within the N’ware culture”, said Dan Parent, CEO of N’ware Technologies.
Mark Rijke Managing Director EMEA said “We further selected the Laois region due to its central location in the country with good connectivity, as well as the fact that it provides us with the opportunity to offer the type of work/life balance to our employees which is part of the core set of values of N’ware Technologies. IDA Ireland has been great in its assistance with the whole process and certainly has made it much easier to get started. With our initial core team in place, we are now actively recruiting and are looking forward to welcoming further new colleagues on board.”
IDA Ireland CEO Martin Shanahan said: “N’ware’s decision to locate in Mountrath demonstrates its confidence in the availability of a skilled and talented workforce in the Laois and wider Midlands region. This announcement demonstrates IDA Ireland’s continued commitment to winning jobs and investment in regional locations. I wish N’ware every success with the establishment of its European HQ in Mountrath.”
