A US-based tech company specialising in repair services for mobile and IT devices used in business is to create 25 jobs at a new base in Wexford.

MTech Mobility has announced its expansion into the European market by leasing a 1,400 square-metre facility at Ardcavan Business Park and applications are already being accepted for the new position.

"Ireland is an ideal launching point for expanding into Europe," MTech's general manager of European operations, Jerry Whiston, said today.

"It's an English-speaking country with a great university system, great workforce and its part of the European Union."

The Wexford project is supported by the Government through IDA Ireland.

The company provides repair and diagnostic services for devices and operating systems to allow clients to maximise their return on IT investment and improve customer satisfaction.

According to CEO, Tony Fernandez, demand is driven by US-based multi-nationals as well as regional organisations with headquarters in Europe.

"We look forward to helping existing US customers with their global reach and bringing this exciting service to new customers in Europe," he said.

CEO of IDA Ireland, Martin Shanahan, said the investment is "a strong vote of confidence in Wexford" and will be a valuable addition to the growing technology cluster in the south-east, "which has proven its agility and adaptability despite the unprecedented challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic".

Tánaiste and Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment, Leo Varadkar, said that the news demonstrates that, "despite the considerable challenges facing our economy, Ireland's ability to attract foreign direct investment is very strong".
