IDA Ireland Congratulates Logitech on Launch of New Facility in Cork

IDA Ireland welcomes the official opening of Logitech International’s new facility at City Gate Plaza in Cork.

Established in 1981, Logitech is a global provider of personal computer, tablet, and mobile accessories. Headquartered in Lausanne, Switzerland, Logitech employs 8,200 people in over thirty countries worldwide.

With products sold in almost every country in the world, Logitech has developed into a multi-brand company designing products that bring people together through music, gaming, video and computing. Brands of Logitech include Logitech, Logitech G, ASTRO Gaming, Ultimate Ears, Jaybird, Blue Microphones, and Streamlabs.

Logitech first arrived in Cork in 1988 and since then has evolved into a strategic R&D and global business services site, where the team has grown to 300.

This project is supported by the Irish Government through IDA Ireland. Some 1,700 multinationals have chosen Ireland, and the country’s proven track record for attracting global foreign direct investment means companies benefit from unrivalled experience in setting up rapidly and quickly achieving scale. As an open, globalised economy, Ireland offers easy access to talent in a vibrant ecosystem of established international businesses.

Interim CEO, IDA Ireland Mary Buckley said about the opening of the Logitech facility in Cork, “this official opening of Logitech’s new facility here in City Gate Plaza demonstrates the global organisation’s continued commitment to Cork, where it has grown its team to 300 since first establishing in the South West in 1998. The ambition of Logitech speaks directly to IDA Ireland’s sustainability pillar which is at the heart of its 2021 – 2024 strategy. I wish Logitech continued success.”
