An Taoiseach, Enda Kenny, this week announced that PFH Technology Group, Ireland's largest indigenous ICT services company, with offices in Dublin, Cork and Galway, is to create 25 new jobs within the organisation. The jobs were announced at the official opening of the company’s new offices in Galway.
Welcoming the announcement, An Taoiseach said, “The 25 new jobs at PFH further strengthen the company's operations in Galway and is a demonstration of its commitment to the West. The jobs are another example of our vibrant tech sector and it’s a great boost for the region. The Government will secure economic recovery by supporting ambitious companies like PFH and getting Ireland working again." The 25 jobs at PFH will be in Sales and Marketing, Cloud Services, and Technical and Consultancy roles.
“In addition to expanding its workforce PFH has also extended its office space, with new facilities in Merlin Park. This expansion,” said Paul Hourican, CEO, PFH Technology Group, “further strengthens the operations in Galway and our commitment to the West will help generate more major contracts in the region.”
“This year PFH has won major contracts in the Government and Private sectors. These contracts include the provision of Private Secure Cloud Infrastructure to two major Government departments - and we have also won the largest migration to Windows 7 from XP in the State, with the upgrading or replacement of over 26,000 machines.”
“Our continued investment in people and offices is evidence of our clients’ appreciation for the services that the wider PFH team provides to companies,” continued Mr Hourican. “We’ve been doing this now for almost thirty years and have learned that the success achieved has been based upon building trust. That’s the lynchpin. Our customers are obviously keen to embrace technology solutions to competitively meet their business goals and they constantly want to work with dedicated, technically skilled and productive people. That’s true of all our customers, be they SME, corporate or in the public sector.”
“PFH recruits professional, qualified staff and continually trains young school leavers and graduates to fill demanding ICT roles within its organisation,” said Mr Hourican. “The scale of services, from Infrastructure to Cloud, means it’s the ideal place for young and qualified professionals to gain access to leading companies and technologies in this state.”
Founded in 1985, the PFH organisation has grown significantly through both organic growth and through a series of strategic acquisitions, including CK Business Systems in 2006, and Unify (previously Siemens Enterprise Communications Ireland ) and Redstone Technology Ireland in 2010. Headquartered in Dublin with additional offices in Cork and Galway, PFH currently employs over 200 employees.
It provides services locally, nationally and internationally from London to as far away as Singapore. Among its clients are 7 of the top ten Government departments as well as the HSE and state security services. PFH Technology Group also counts over 70 of the top 100 fortune 500 companies in Ireland as clients.
