In recent months Claremorris based Retail Technology Company CBE has created 20 new jobs to cater for their continued growth both in Ireland and Internationally.
CEO, Sean Kenna explains “In spite of the Brexit risk, our UK business is our fastest growing division and next month we will be moving to a much larger UK head office and operations hub based in Derby, to cater for this growth.
“Our international business outside of the UK also continues to grow. We now have a presence in 12 countries including the USA, Canada, Denmark, Spain, Algeria and Bahrain. All of which we remotely support from our Head Office in Claremorris.
Our new staff are highly skilled graduates and will be involved in many facets of the business including Software Development, Project Management, Marketing, Sales and Administration.
We are delighted that CBE can offer quality local employment to those highly skilled people, the majority coming from Third Level Education along the West of Ireland.
Our business model has evolved in recent years, enabling us to build partnerships with leading global companies to provide them with bespoke solutions. In order for this to happen, our Research & Development division had to grow considerably and within the last 8 years it has trebled to over 40 employees.
Next year CBE will be celebrating 40 years of business in Claremorris and we are looking forward to many more years of continued growth.”
