Computer and technology giant IBM has announced 200 new jobs at a new international services centre.
The multinational which already employs about 3,000 people in Ireland is to open the centre in Mulhuddart, Dublin.
Joan Burton, Minister for Social Protection and a local TD, welcomed the investment.
“I am delighted that IBM has chosen Dublin West for this significant expansion,” she said.
“It is a great vote of confidence in the people of Dublin West, in IDA Ireland and in the Government’s jobs strategy.”
It is understood the new site will house IBM’s global services integration hub.
IBM already operates research, software development and services at its technology campus in Mulhuddart and in Cork and Galway and has a European sales and services support centre in Blanchardstown.
