More than 60 high new jobs have been announced for Limerick.

Worldwide TechServices is to establish its European headquarters in the city, creating 62 new jobs.

The investment is supported by the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation through IDA Ireland.

The new Limerick base will support operations and sales activities across Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

''Limerick was chosen for this operation due to its excellent skills base, established technology cluster and connectivity to the Boston area and excellent reach capacity into mainland Europe,'' said Donna Martin, chief operations officer with WWTS.

''WWTS is an excellent addition to Limerick’s technology cluster. WWTS has a growing customer base and many high profile customers operating in global markets. Dell, HP, Sony, Canon and Apple are just some of the company’s customers,'' said IDA Ireland's Barry O'Leary.

The company employs more than 3,000 people worldwide.
