Motorola Solutions has announced it is opening a new Research and Development Centre in Cork, which is expected to generate 200 highly skilled jobs. 

The team will be focused on designing software for the company’s comprehensive land mobile radio (LMR) portfolio, with plans for expansion across other technologies in the future.

'Future Vision'

“Decade after decade, the durability of our mission-critical LMR technology helps protect those who protect us all,” said Chairman and CEO of Motorola Solutions, Greg Brown. 

“Our new centre in Cork will contribute to advancing our future vision for LMR, while building upon the collective impact of our more than 20,000 employees who are innovating what’s next for our customers around the world.”

Development

The new R&D Centre, planned for Cork’s city centre, complements Motorola Solutions’ existing footprint in Ireland, which is focused on delivering the emergency services’ secure communications network, Ireland’s National Digital Radio Service.

Following investments of more than $12 billion (€11.07 billion) in R&D and acquisitions over the past decade, the company has deployed more than 13,000 LMR networks worldwide. 

'Innovation Footprint'

“Today’s announcement of its new Research and Development Centre in Cork marks a significant step forward in the company’s commitment to Ireland and in further expanding its innovation footprint in technology that plays a vital role around the world to help keep people safe, today and in the future," said US Ambassador to Ireland, Claire D. Cronin. 

"It also recognises the highly skilled talent in Ireland and further bolsters the strong trade and investment relationships between the United States and Ireland.”
