100 jobs have been announced for County Louth today.

Kellton Tech Solutions is setting up a new headquarters in Drogheda, with the positions set to come on stream over the next five years.

The development is supported by the Department of Jobs through the IDA.

Kellton Tech says its products enable companies to take advantage of the 'internet of things' and other systems.

The new office is set to be the 'heart' of the company's EMEA operations, as well as housing a research & development facility.

Acting Minister of State and newly elected Senator Ged Nash said the announcement "is great news for Drogheda and the wider county that the company has decided to base its EMEA headquarters here and will bring a welcome 100 jobs boost to the area.

"I have no doubt that our skilled workforce and location has helped in Kellton Tech’s choice to base itself here, joining a growing number of digital and technology companies in Louth," he added.

Krishna Chintam, co-founder and Managing Director at Kellton Tech, said the new facility "will act as our springboard to make inroads into the European market and beyond".
