An Tánaiste, Simon Coveney yesterday officially opened Glandore’s latest flexible workspace in Cork City.
Glandore has invested €1.5million in this flexible workspace and coworking space at City Quarter at Lapps Quay, Cork City Centre. The additional 300 desk spaces in Cork brings their capacity to almost 3,000 desks, across 9 locations in Cork, Dublin and Belfast.
Glandore say their aim is to create a dynamic, supportive and friendly community in which every individual and company can grow. Their mission is to provide the very best start to a company’s business operations and facilitate their growth by offering flexibility, scalability and accelerating their business network of like-minded peers through the Glandore Network.
Some of Ireland’s most dynamic and celebrated multinationals began their life in Glandore’s workspaces, including Facebook, Twitter and Dropbox.
Speaking this week, An Tánaiste, Simon Coveney said, “I am delighted to welcome Michael Kelly and the Kelly family to Cork. The choice of Cork City for Glandore’s latest flexible office space expansion and investment is a key part of ensuring that spaces such as these drive Ireland’s foreign direct investment growth. I commend Glandore for contributing to Cork’s business ecosystem and their new offices in City Quarter, Lapps Quay will greatly help to meet the needs of growing businesses in Ireland..”
Glandore Founder, Michael Kelly added, “As our company name suggests, we have always had a love for Cork having spent many family holidays in West Cork. In terms of business, it has been our vision to bring our experience, professionalism, care and hospitality to local and international firms seeking a base outside of Dublin, and Cork was the natural location for our expansion, and is set to become the fastest growing city in Ireland over the next 20 years.”
