Copperfasten Technologies the global providers of powerful yet easy-to-manage business email & web security solutions, today announced that An Taoiseach, Enda Kenny T.D. will officially open their Galway office on the 16th November 2012. Copperfasten Technologies, which currently employs 20 people in Salthill, Co.

The expansion was based on new investment of €500k by Oyster Technology Investments Ltd and Enterprise Ireland. The investment will help fund a significant export-led growth plan that is forecast to more than treble sales over the next 3 years.  It builds on previous significant investment in R&D by the firm, part-funded by Enterprise Ireland, to develop WebTitan, the company’s web security gateway appliance.
