Copperfasten Technologies, an email and web security business solutions company, today announced that it will create 37 new jobs supported by Enterprise Ireland in Galway. The expansion is 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.
Copperfasten Technologies, which currently employs 15 people in Salthill, Co. Galway, Ireland was established in 2000 by former staff of DEC Galway. The company produces two security solutions for the B2B market – SpamTitan anti spam and the WebTitan web filter.
Congratulating the company in Galway today, An Taoiseach Enda Kenny said “this announcement by Copperfasten is great news for Galway, for the Western region and for the Irish software industry. This is a prime example of an Irish firm, investing in R&D to develop world-class products for export and growth at home and abroad. Economic stability is essential for businesses to invest and plan for the future. For our part, the Government will continue through the Action Plan for Jobs to create and maintain an environment where R&D can flourish. I wish Copperfasten continued success in their ambitious growth plans with support from Enterprise Ireland.”
Ronan Kavanagh, CEO of Copperfasten Technologies said “we are delighted to make this announcement today which will allow us to continue to build on our success to date and increase the foot print of our products internationally. We have seen fantastic adoption of our products and it is great to now be in a position to build on this. This investment and the new positions will allow us to drive sales and scale the company in the forthcoming years.”
Barry Egan, Enterprise Ireland’s Western Regional Director said “through investment in R&D, and a clear and focused strategy, Copperfasten has developed an enviable position competing in the same field as global names such as Symantec, CISCO and McAfee. Enterprise Ireland is proud to support Copperfasten’s achievements and will continue to work closely with the company as it executes its export-led growth strategy.”
