It was announced today that Tyco International has opened their new global headquarters and business service center at One Albert Quay in Cork.
More than 400 guests, including Minister of Agriculture, Food and the Marine and Defence, Simon Coveney, attended today's announcement
Tyco is the world's largest pure-play fire protection and security company. They provide more than three million customers around the globe with the latest fire protection and security products and services.
The company has over 57,000 employees in more than 900 locations across 50 countries serving various end markets, including commercial, institutional, governmental, retail, industrial, energy, residential and small business
In January 2014, the company, working in partnership with IDA Ireland, announced plans to establish a global business service center and hire more than 500 employees over three years to provide consistent, efficient delivery of several processes for its businesses, including sourcing and procurement, customer service, research and development, information technology and finance.
Later that year, Tyco also shifted its place of incorporation to Ireland. Approximately 250 employees are now working in the new building.
Tyco Chief Executive Officer, George R. Oliver today commented, "We are extremely pleased with how quickly this impressive facility has become a reality with the help of many partners in the government, private and academic sectors in the Cork area and throughout Ireland.
"The center is already producing strong results and has woven into the fabric of the Cork community. We look forward to becoming an employer and partner of choice in Ireland and continuing to make significant contributions as a corporate citizen."
