Minister Martin Cullen last Friday officially opened the new Evros office and Network Operations Centre at Cleaboy Business Park, Kilmeadan Road, Waterford.

Evros, an independent IT solutions provider, is a family company founded by Mr Tommy Brett and the late Mrs Liz Brett in 1988. The enterprise is now managed by their daughter Ms Caroline Godsil and has an annual turnover of €10 million. The company has three offices in Ireland – in Waterford, Little Island in Cork and in the Parkwest Industrial Estate in Dublin.

The company originally had offices located on The Mall in Waterford city. The move to Cleaboy Business Park has seen Evros double its floor space to accommodate staff and its new Network Operations Centre. The new Centre on the premises has created 10 new posts which are in addition to the fifty workers already employed in Waterford and around the country. The Operations Centre will provide specific remote technical diagnostics and support for customers both in Ireland, in the UK and on the continent.

Minister Cullen said: “Evros has worked hard over the years to build up its customer base. You now have very strong technical and business relationships with the world’s leading technology manufacturers and software developers. Your prestigious portfolio of business partners includes HP, IBM, Siemens, Microsoft, Fujitsu and Cisco to mention just a few”.

“I know that further investment in staff and infrastructure are the key factors in Caroline Godsil’s plans to double the size of the enterprise over the next three years, while remaining loyal to the original principles of the business established by her father and mother”.
