40 new IT jobs are being created at a technology firm in County Mayo.

CBE specialises in software for retailers like Supervalu and Centra.

It is taking on extra workers as part of efforts to enter the US market, but the new roles will be based at their headquarters in Claremorris.

The company already supports operations in Canada, Australia, The Isle of Man, and Algeria. 

Set up in 1980, CBE hopes to employ 150 people here by the end of 2017.

Gerard Concannon, CBE’s CEO, said, "we are thankful to Enterprise Ireland for all of the support and expertise that they provide to us as we continue to grow our business in export markets. It must also be noted that the high quality of graduates from the third level colleges in Ireland has given us a real competitive advantage over international competitors within the IT sector.

"The vision and hard work of the Mayo County Council and Claremorris Chamber of Commerce must be complemented too," he added.
