TALKS aimed at the creation of a substantial number of jobs in Castlebar are ‘at an advanced stage’, according to a director of the company hoping to locate in the county town.
Kaptec, a company who specialise in outsourcing services, are involved in negotiations but a director would not reveal exact details of the discussions when contacted by The Mayo News this week.
“All I want to say at present is that our discussions are at an advanced stage and we are very hopeful of locating in Castlebar. However, I do not want to hinder those discussions by going public on any of the important details at present,” stated the Scottish-based director.
The Mayo News has learned that Kaptec want to set up their business in the old Cedar Communications building (right) which is located in Moneen in Castlebar.
Castlebar Town Mayor, Cllr Brendan Henaghan, said he was delighted to hear that there was a distinct possibility of the creation of a substantial number of new jobs for Mayo’s capital.
“I hope the talks which the company are currently conducting are completed successfully. Too many industrial jobs have been lost in Castlebar over the last five years and have not been replaced. We have been lucky as the growth in the retail sector has been phenomenal in that same period with many multi-national companies locating in the town. I hope these negotiations are completed successfully in the coming weeks,” he said.
On the company’s website, Kaptec state they are an outsourcing services provider specialising in offering Customer Service, Technical Support and Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) type services to medium and large organisations.
Kaptec Services are listed as providers of Technical Support, Customer Care, Business Process Services, Call Centre Quality Control, Software Development and 24/7 Call Centre Services.
