Diane Dodds, economy minister, claimed that the jobs would inject £3.7m in salaries into an economy that “continues to attract new investors”.
“The calibre of the two universities, and the graduates they are producing made Northern Ireland very attractive to us as well.”
“The support of the team at Invest NI has most definitely made this decision easier to make, and easier to implement.”
The centre has already recruited 12 employees to high-skill roles that will attract top level salaries.
Kevin Holland, CEO, Invest Northern Ireland said that the team in Northern Ireland will “drive engineering and software excellence” for the firm’s operations.
