Dassault Systèmes opened a new office in Phoenix House, Monahan Road, Cork yesterday. The French Ambassador H.E. Stéphane Crouzat presided over the opening ceremony with Simon Coveney, Tánaiste & Minister for Foreign Affairs & Trade, and Cllr. Mick Finn, Lord Mayor of Cork City Council, with many members of the French and Irish business communities in attendance.
Dassault Systèmes is headquartered in Paris and employs over 17,000 staff worldwide. The new state of the art office in Phoenix House has doubled the capacity of the previous office in an area of the docklands which is going through considerable growth.
The Dassault Systèmes team in Cork has a historic expertise in the Life Science industry but more recently has evolved into other industries such as aerospace, automotive and high tech.
Speaking yesterday, Country Manager Dassault Systèmes Ireland, Kevin O’Leary said, "We have an outstanding team in Cork delivering innovation and growth across our global client base. With this new investment we now have the foundation from which to accelerate our cross-industry expansion."
