Irish company Fleetmatics today announced its plans to move its team into a state-of-the-art campus in Sandyford, Co. Dublin. The move facilitates the continued growth at the company which has already hired more than 100 people in the past year.

This recent recruitment brings the total workforce in the rapidly growing company to about 250 people. 
   
The company was founded in Ireland in 2004 in a small office in Templeogue, Dublin, employing about 10 people in the first year of operation. In 2016, Verizon Communications Inc. acquired Fleetmatics, enabling the company to further grow, scale and bring its fleet and mobile workforce management solutions to more organisations in more countries across the globe.
   
Current and future employees are due to move into the new campus by mid-2018.
   
Speaking today, Chief Technology Officer at Fleetmatics, Peter Mitchell said, "As an Irish company, we’re proud of the growth we’ve achieved in recent years. To have evolved from a start-up based in a small office in Dublin, to being a large telematics player in Europe is something that continues to drive our Irish workforce to innovate and create new solutions for our customers. Since joining forces with Verizon Telematics, we have been able to further accelerate innovation in our sector and I’m looking forward to seeing this continued growth into 2018."
