€600,000 investment in Tipperary Town Technology Park

Deputy Michael Lowry has stated he is delighted to confirm that under the Regional Enterprise Development Fund, Tipperary Town Technology Park has been allocated €500,000. Tipperary County Council will provide an additional €100,000 giving a total investment of €600,000 in the project

This fund will provide for a full upgrade of existing technology. It will digitally link the Tipperary Park with the ENGINE INNOVATION CENTRE in Limerick. It will enable the Tipperary Technology Park to give smaller businesses the opportunity to enter the circle of companies that provide services for the largest multinationals in the region. This central hub also provides solutions for entrepreneurs, start-ups and businesses.

The fund will be directed towards improving the quality and standard of the existing co-working hot desks. It will increase the number of co-working spaces. It will lead to the appointment of a full-time Manager of the facility in Tipperary Town.

I wish to compliment the Jobs 4 Tipp Group on their inspiring initiative, and I am pleased that the efforts of the partnership of everyone involved in the Technology Park has been rewarded with this success.

Last year I proposed the formation of the Tipp Town Task Force which received Government approval. The Task Force is up and running, engaging and interacting effectively on a broad scale. The funding for this particular project based in the Technology Park is a practical demonstration of the commitment to assist and support worthwhile regeneration initiatives in Tipperary Town.
