It was annopunced last week that EML Payments Limited (EML) is expanding its operation in Galway with the establishment of a Technology & Innovation Hub, employing 20 people.
The Australian company provides prepaid payment services in Australia, Europe and North America, issuing mobile, virtual and physical card solutions for pay-outs, gifts, incentives and rewards as well as supplier payments.
The company has an established sales and marketing operation in Wicklow. EML also offers supplier enablement, payment execution, programme management and other services.
Speaking last week, Minister Heather Humphreys, who is undertaking a trade and investment mission in Australia at present, welcomed the announcement, saying "This expansion is a great vote of confidence in Galway and, in particular, the highly skilled local workforce. The Irish Government has worked hard to ensure that we have the best possible conditions in place to encourage investments like this and I am delighted to see EML once again recognising this through their expansion. I would like to warmly congratulate the company on this wonderful achievement and wish them the very best in the exciting chapter ahead."
