Cloud firm 3EN to double Co Down operation with £1.2m investment
CO Down cloud business solutions firm 3EN has announced a £1.2 million investment, creating 16 jobs.
The move will double the headcount at the company’s Holywood offices.
The 3EN Group, which currently employs 42 people, recently expanded its operation in the City of London, recruiting four new staff.
The company also operates in Dublin and Bonn.
The expansion in Co Down has been backed with £164,000 from Invest NI.
George McKinney, Invest NI’s director of technology said the economic support agency had been working with 3EN over a number of years.
“In 2015 we supported the company with an R&D investment which helped it to develop its Netgento and Dependency Checker software integration programmes. The company is now successfully securing significant export deals, following our support.
“The new jobs will help the company to continue its international market growth and will generate over £557,000 in additional annual salaries for the Northern Ireland economy.”
The new jobs will include systems architects, developers, engineers, accountants, and graduate roles across sales and marketing.
Dale Cree, chief executive of 3EN Cloud Ltd, said: “We are proud of our reputation as a Northern Irish company that’s resolving difficult software implementation issues for businesses globally.
“With the support of Invest NI we have created software products to showcase in international markets, securing a wealth of export successes. Following Invest NI’s trade support we have achieved sales in Boston, along with recent contract wins with Malwarebytes, Cogs, Mile High Labs, Keywords Studios and Fitbit.
“Our team expansion will help us to grow our business, maintaining a high standard of quality for our current clients, while also continuing to increase our export sales across Europe and the US.”
