Canadian tech company N’ Ware Technologies has chosen Laois as home to its European HQ creating 25 new jobs.

Supported by the Irish Government through IDA Ireland, the company is setting up in Mountrath initially by locating in BloomHQ, the remote working hub in the former Brigidine Convent.

The news was confirmed and welcomed locally by the Laois-Offaly TD and Minister of State at the Department of Finance, Seán Fleming.

"I am very pleased with this announcement from the IDA and N’ware. It is a major boost for Mountrath and Co Laois. As a Minister for State I have asked the IDA to prioritise Laois as a base for new businesses. I have been speaking directly with Martin Shanahan , Chief Executive of the IDA in recent days asking him to give special attention to Co Laois in view of the low numbers of IDA supported jobs currently in the county.

"N’ware’s announcement today is a very positive development for Laois. It is further evidence of the benefits of locating in the regions outside Dublin where there is access to talent , lower operating costs, top class broadband and higher staff retention rates. I would like to welcome N’Ware to Mountrath and I look forward to working with them over the coming years," said the Fianna Fáil TD. MORE BELOW LINK.
