Tyco International celebrates opening of new global headquarters
Ken Murphy, Director CareerWise Recruitment, recently attended the opening of Tyco International’s new global headquarters with a ceremony for 400 guests. The opening event took place at One Albert Quay in Cork, including dignitaries such as Simon Coveney, Ireland’s Minister of Agriculture, Food and the Marine, and Defence.
In January 2014, the company, working in partnership with IDA Ireland, announced plans to establish a global business service center and hire more than 500 employees over three years to provide consistent, efficient delivery of several processes for its businesses, including sourcing and procurement, customer service, research and development, information technology and finance.
This was a significant day for the Cork Business Community as they arrived in great numbers to marvel at “Ireland’s smartest building”.
Tyco is half way to its total headcount of 500 over three years across procurement, R&D, IT, compliance, HR and finance to support global business units.
“We are extremely pleased with how quickly this impressive facility has become a reality with the help of many partners in the government, private and academic sectors in the Cork area and throughout Ireland,”
George R. Oliver, Tyco Chief Executive Officer
