Global communications company Poly is to open its new centre of excellence in Galway, which is expected to create more than 200 jobs here over the next five years.

The Galway office will be Poly’s first in Ireland and it will service the company’s 65 offices across the world.

Galway will be home to Poly’s main Research & Development lab in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa (EMEA).

The company said it is investing in the region to meet the “growing demand” for its audio and video products, as businesses get used to managing employees remotely.

Poly is now exploring spaces for its office location across Galway, which it expects to open in November.

“Poly always has been a trailblazer and opening up an office in Galway is part of our transformation journey,” said Gloria Loredo, Chief Transformation Officer of Poly.

“We believe that this strategic move will enable us to maximise our business performance to better serve customers, leverage the existing technology talent pool in Ireland to fill critical roles, and support our company’s growth.”

CEO of IDA Ireland Martin Shanahan said: “Poly’s decision to locate its EMEA Centre of Excellence in Galway is a significant addition to the West region’s vibrant tech cluster and testament to the region’s highly skilled and talented workforce.”

“The 200 highly skilled jobs being created will be a considerable boost to the region’s economy.”

Founded in 1961 in Santa Cruz California, Poly employs more than 8,000 people globally.
