An Taoiseach Enda Kenny with John Hinshaw, Executive Vice President HP (right pictured) at the Opening of Hewlett-Packard’s New 87,000sq ft Innovation Centre at Ballybrit, Co GalwayHP (@HP), has opened a new new 87,000sq ft Innovation Centre in Ballybrit, Galway, which the company says will house 700 engineers, consultants and support teams currently employed by HP, and confirms Galway's status as a Centre of Excellence within HP globally focusing on software research and development, OpenStack cloud technology and business service innovation.



2015 is HP's 44th year in Ireland, tracing its history back to the site of its original manufacturing facility in Ballybrit in Galway. In the years since, HP Ireland has evolved from a predominantly manufacturing base into a diverse operation that delivers next generation technology and research and development as well as financial services, customer services, and sales and marketing.



John Hinshaw, HP's Chief Customer Officer and Executive Vice President (right pictured), said: "Our customers need technology enabled solutions to differentiate their businesses from their competition. The research and development investments we are making in Ireland will ensure HP is leading the way with innovative solutions for our customers' future."



Last year HP announced 100 additional jobs in Galway. The investment was part of the company's plans to expand the global reach of the HP Helion portfolio of cloud products and services in the US, China, India, Europe and Asia. The HP Cloud Research and Development team in Galway played a large role in delivering HP's public cloud - one of the largest OpenStack-based public clouds in the world.


Martin Murphy, Managing Director, HP Ireland, commented: "This is an exciting and proud day for all HP employees in Ireland. This new Innovation Centre demonstrates HP's commitment to Ireland, our investment in high-tech jobs, strong links with Irish universities and contribution to the economy nationally and regionally."


HP currently employs around 4,000 people on the island of Ireland - and has invested over $1 billion over the last 20 years.
