It was announced today that Ireland’s largest wholesale, open-access network provider, Enet is investing €1m in a new state-of-the-art headquarters facility in Limerick.
The business, which has offices in Limerick and Dublin, will move from its existing premises to a new standalone 14,000 sq ft location at National Technological Park, Plassey in early 2020.
Enet has been headquartered in Limerick since the company was founded in 2004 and the business currently has over 120 employees across the Limerick and Dublin offices, with 75 located in Limerick.
The new office space will accommodate the ongoing expansion of the business and will also include a new high-tech Network Operations Centre (NOC) that will continue to operate 24//7, as well as a dedicated data centre.
Enet currently works with over 80 different service providers to bring high-quality bandwidth connectivity to more than one million end users throughout Ireland.
Commenting on the investment, Enet Group CEO, Peter McCarthy said, "We are incredibly excited about expanding our footprint in Limerick with this new state-of-the-art facility. In fact, we are doubling the size of the premises we have in Limerick, making it the most significant investment the company has made in terms of a building redevelopment to date."
He added, "Enet has never said that the MANs directly create FDI jobs, however, the networks certainly play a pivotal role in removing any telecoms or bandwidth barriers. The networks and the world-class service available allow Irish cities and towns to complete on a global scale. The success of this strategy is dramatically underlined by the performance of the Limerick MAN, which is one of the largest of the MANs in the country."
