Leader reporters: Uber opens €4m Centre of Excellence in Limerick

ON-DEMAND car service provider Uber has officially opened its Centre of Excellence (CoE) at Thomas Street in Limerick city centre.

The Centre - the company’s first outside of the United States - will support millions of customers and tens of thousands of partner-drivers in more than 30 cities in 10 countries.

Uber has invested over €4m so far as it aims to make Limerick one of its growing network of customer service hubs across the world.
The investment is supported by the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation through IDA Ireland.

The company has signed a ten year lease for a number of upper-floors at the premises on Thomas Street and a major refit and redesign has been carried out over the last number of months.

Around 100 employees have been employed by the Uber to date and more than 300 full-time staff will be based at the Centre of Excellence when it is fully operational.
