A FRENCH IT company is to open an office in Limerick later this year.
Expleo is a global engineering, technology, and consulting service, and currently has five offices in Ireland, with the new Limerick office bringing their Irish portfolio to six.
They currently employ over 750 staff across Ireland, and the Limerick office is set to create 15 additional jobs, adding to the company’s aim of having 1,000 staff in Ireland by the end of 2024.
Expleo specialise in quality testing for technology, having previously worked on testing the Covid-19 tracing app.
They currently have offices in Dublin, Cork, Belfast, Derry, and Galway, with the aim of expanding further across the country. They chose to have multiple offices around the country rather than a single hub to have a closer presence to its customers in those areas, as well as to provide more opportunities for its staff to work closer to their homes.
The company were founded in Paris in 1966, under the name Atem Engineering, and was renamed Expleo in 2019.
According to their website, Expleo has “wide-ranging expertise in fields including AI engineering, digitalisation, hyper-automation, cybersecurity, and data science.”
“The group’s mission is to fast-track innovation through each step of the value chain.”
The company currently have over 17,000 staff in over 30 countries worldwide.
