Province Lands Pounds 29.4m Fujitsu Telecoms Plant


McGILL, Adrienne, The News Letter (Belfast, Northern Ireland)


JAPANESE telecoms giant Fujitsu moved a step closer to making Northern Ireland its European centre of excellence yesterday with the announcement of a pounds 29.4 million investment in an advanced engineering centre in Belfast.

Fujitsu Telecommunications Europe Ltd (FTEL), a subsidiary of Fujitsu Ltd, will employ a total of 400 skilled engineers in the new operation known as "Telecommunication Ireland".

One hundred and fifty jobs are already in place while 250 new positions will be created in the expansion, which incorporates the company's existing Belfast city centre-based software operation.

The engineering centre will be responsible for developing and testing advanced communications products for Fujitsu in North America and Europe.

This latest IDB-backed investment, which was revealed in yesterday's News Letter, is the fourth by Fujitsu in Northern Ireland since 1996 and is the largest to date by any Japanese company operating in the Province.

The company has received Selective Financial Assistance of pounds 3.9 million towards the cost.

Announcing details, Sir Reg Empey, Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Development, said it was a massive stamp of approval from one of the world's leading technology companies and would provide first class opportunities for graduates.
