Press Release 23 Apr 2012

Dublin, 23rd April, 2012--Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, Richard Bruton TD, today announced that digital cinema software company Unique Digital Ltd, is expanding its European headquarters in Dublin.  The Irish Government, through IDA Ireland, worked closely with the company to attract the investment to Ireland. 
Unique Digital Ltd is the world's leading provider of digital cinema software, servicing the International market.  The company designs and develops software and hardware solutions for film distributors, cinemas and advertisers. The company’s growing list of territories boasts 20 countries to date.
Making the announcement Minister Bruton said: "Today's announcement that Unique Digital is locating in Ireland is excellent news.  A key part of the Government’s plan for jobs and growth is ensuring that we deepen and develop the impact of multinational investment here. We have a base of multinational companies here that is the envy of the world, but if we are to create the numbers of jobs we need we must build on this and attract a new cohort of companies which we haven’t reached before.
“Today’s announcement that five high-growth early-stage European companies are locating operations in Ireland with the creation of 77 jobs is great news. These are companies that might be relatively small now, but have the potential to grow exponentially and create large numbers of jobs here. Through continued implementation of the Action Plan for Jobs I am determined to ensure that we attract a wider spread of multinational companies and help get Ireland back to work”.

Speaking at the announcement, Mr Chris Olsson-Hagan said: “Ireland's impressive entertainment and digital media community along with a highly skilled labour pool and a dedication to innovation is closely aligned with Unique Digital’s strategy.  We have hired a number of software developers and technicians from the Irish market and they have been key in assisting our international growth from Ireland.  We look forward to many years of success here and would like to thank IDA Ireland for its assistance and support in assisting our expansion here”.  
Welcoming the announcement, Barry O’Leary, CEO of IDA Ireland said:  “Digital cinema is an exciting segment in the digital media sector, a sector which continues to experience phenomenal growth.  Ireland’s well established track record and thriving digital media cluster make it a perfect fit for young emerging companies in this space.  Today, this industry employs over 3,000 employees in Ireland and this figure continues to grow.  Unique Digital Ltd is an excellent example of the type of forward looking company that IDA is keen to attract to Ireland to leverage Ireland’s success and knowledge in this area and to assist such companies to grow and internationalise from Ireland.  Unique Digital is a welcome addition to Ireland’s dynamic digital media cluster and I wish the company every success as it establishes here”.
