The importance of developing more new Irish owned businesses that are capable of competing internationally and generating significant export earnings cannot be exaggerated.”
According to Mr. Frank Murphy, Managing Director of Monex, the KTI Centre has proven to be an ideal base from which to develop and expand his business. “When we moved to the KTI Centre in 2000 we had 15 employees and were seeking a strategic business base to allow us to grow and develop. In this regard we have found the KTI complex to be an ideal location. I have no hesitation in recommending the KTI Centre to start-up and developing enterprises in the ICT sector”, Mr. Murphy said.
