With a base of 13 FDI companies employing 2,000 people, Kerry continues to be an attractive location in which to do business and develop enterprise.
The ‘Invest in Kerry’ brand developed in partnership with IDA Ireland provides information and advice for companies looking to invest in the county. Kerry’s outward looking approach and strong work life balance has proved to be attractive for many companies and the county is home to some internationally known names like Fexco, Dairymaster, Liebherr, Borg Warner and Kerry Group.
The continued expansion of many of our multinationals proves that large companies can grow from a rural base into the international arena. Work continues with strategic partners on the establishment of Kerry as a centre of excellence in financial technology (Fintech) and agricultural technology (Agritech) which represent strong employment potential for the county. Kerry is host to considerable business networks and economic infrastructure including a number of digital enterprise hubs. Examples of these include, Kerry SciTech, the Tom Crean Business Centre, RDI Hub, Killarney Technology Innovation Centre, Dingle Creativity & Innovation Hub, Sneem Digital Hub, Castleisland Carnegie, Agritech Centre of Excellence, as well as a number of private hubs.
