Huawei's global headquarters, Shenzhen, China.

Irish Economy: Huawei, the Chinese tech giant today announced the opening of a new R&D (research and development centre) Centre, spread across two sites in Cork City and Dublin, Ireland. Huawei will create jobs for over 50 "highly-skilled research professionals who will contribute a broad range of skills and expertise to the company’s global operations," according to IDA Ireland. Initially the centre will focus on Huawei’s next generation Customer Experience Management Product, SmartCare, supporting the company in providing customer services to telecoms operators both in Ireland and internationally. Future expansion at the sites "will extend R&D functions to cover a wider range of IT software projects."

“Huawei Technologies is one of the most prominent brands in the global ICT sector,” said Barry O’Leary, CEO of IDA Ireland. “This announcement is a vote of confidence in Ireland’s technological capability and strong track record in the ICT sector. Huawei Ireland has continued to expand its business since beginning its Irish operations over eight years ago. I wish Huawei Technologies every success in their operation in Cork and offer them continued and full support of the IDA,” he said.

Derek Ding, managing director of Huawei Ireland, said: ‘‘The new centre is a significant commitment to Ireland over the next three years, with many more highly-skilled jobs being created. It reflects a deep and long-term commitment to the country. Cork and Dublin were chosen for their well-educated, skilled workforce offering the high-quality of talent needed to provide the range of services needed for a strategic OSS R&D centre. Excitingly, the recruitment process has already begun and 12 positions have already been filled."

“Ireland has an open environment for overseas investment and the new R&D centre is a perfect fit for our continued growth here. We are pleased to be collaborating with the IDA and I want to thank them for their support in this venture.”

Huawei was first established its Irish sales office in 2004 and currently employs over 140,000 people globally, including 40 people presently in Ireland. Customers include Eircom, O2 Ireland, BT Ireland, VDF Ireland, H3G Ireland.
