Thursday, February 11, 2010

D and B, formerly known as Dun and Bradstreet, the world’s leading supplier of business information, has announced that it is to establish a business operations centre in Dublin - an investment facilitated by the Irish government through IDA, Ireland's inward investment promotion agency.

D&B's global commercial database contains more than 140 million business records in over 200 countries. Its new operations will create 100 new highly skilled new positions by mid-2010.

Making the announcement, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment, Mary Coughlan, said: “I am delighted to announce the establishment of D&B’s Centre in Ireland. This highly sophisticated operation is in line with the government’s continuing efforts to position Ireland as the leading European location-of-choice for innovation-led and knowledge-based global investments. D&B is a highly reputable company and its decision to locate in Dublin is a clear endorsement of Ireland’s global reputation in the international business services sector.”

Commenting on the announcement, Barry O’Leary, CEO of IDA Ireland added:

“D&B is the world leader in quality business information services and its reputation within the business community is second to none. Its decision to choose Ireland for this strategically important and knowledge-driven activity is very significant for Dublin and the country as a whole. It is a tremendous addition to our global business services base.”
