Telecommunications firm Aruba Networks is to create 40 jobs in Cork over the next four years.

The US company is setting up its international headquarters and shared services centre for all regions outside of the US in Cork. The move is supported by IDA Ireland.

'Today's announcement demonstrates once again the crucial importance of our low corporation tax, our skilled workforce and our existing base of high-tech companies,' commented the Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, Richard Bruton as he met Aruba executives in the US.

'As the demand for our wireless products increases so too does the need for us to be closer to our customers in Europe,' commented Dominic Orr, President and CEO of Aruba Networks.

'We chose Ireland as a centre from which to expand our presence in the European market due to the country's existing base of ICT companies, the talented workforce and the highly-efficient corporate tax structure,' he added.
