"Pramerica is delighted that we have reached this historic milestone just 15 short years since we launched our business in Letterkenny with eight employees,” said Caroline Faulkner, senior managing director and chief information officer at Pramerica Systems Ireland.
“With Ireland’s rich pipeline of talent and favourable work environment, now is the ideal time for us to make an investment in a new campus facility.”
The new site is approximately one kilometre from Pramerica’s existing facility in Windy Hall, within the same business park. The first of two construction phases will begin during Q4 of 2015 and will be completed by summer 2017. Occupancy of the 135,000-square-foot facility, which could eventually accommodate up to 1,800 staff members, is tentatively scheduled to open in mid-2016.
“We currently employ more than 1,200 people who are dispersed in four buildings. The new facility will bring them together in a single location,” Faulkner said. “In addition, it will give us the space we need to bring on approximately 330 new staff members over the next three years.
