Pramerica Systems Ireland Limited has today opened a new €42 million campus in Letterkenny. Opening with just 8 employees in 2000, Pramerica has grown to become the largest employer in the northwest region with more than 1,500 staff.
The new 130,000-square-foot campus features green technologies for electricity generation and rainfall harvesting. It has parking for more than 1,000 vehicles, landscaped and green areas for staff recreation and many other amenities.
Pramerica Systems Ireland Limited is a wholly-owned subsidiary of U.S. headquartered Prudential Financial, Inc. The company was established in Letterkenny 17 years ago and provides a wide range of technology and business services and solutions to Prudential.
Construction took a year, was one of the largest construction projects in the country and employed more than 220 local tradespeople. Pramerica will donate €10,000 to the local Special Olympics to coincide with the opening, continuing a tradition that it started when the first office opened in 2000.
Speaking this week, Senior Vice President and Chief Information Officer, Barbara Koster said, "This investment underscores our commitment to the Letterkenny community and to Ireland. This new campus ensures that the immensely talented people who work here have every resource they need to provide excellent service to the customers they support. The exceptional community backing we enjoy here only adds to the success."
