Technology firm Innovative Interfaces is expanding its Dublin operation, adding 25 jobs at it European headquarters in Dublin by the end of next year.

The move will double the number of people employed at the firm, which specialises in library technology.

Innovative, which was founded in 1978 and has its headquarters in California, came to Ireland in 2012. Chief executive Kim Massana said the company had a “very positive experience” of the business environment in Ireland.

“Dublin has a rich talent pool and we have been able to recruit an exceptionally skilled and multi-lingual staff to serve our customers throughout Europe - our current staff of 25 is fluent in 15 languages,” he said. “This is a real advantage to a global company like Innovative that serves libraries in more than 60 countries.”

The move was welcomed by Taoiseach Enda Kenny. “Innovative’s decision to expand its operation in Ireland with the creation of 25 new jobs is another vote of confidence in the country’s strengths as a location for investment,” he said.

Innovative provides integrated library management and automation software, which is installed in various types of libraries including academic, public, consortia, school, medical and law.
