A multi-million global company has launched its new European headquarters in Wexford town with 40 new jobs expected to be created in the next two years. Scurri, whose premises is situated on Selskar Street, is a delivery management software company that connects and optimises the online ordering, shipping and delivery process for retailers.
Its new state-of-the-art headquarters will serve as an operational base for over 100 workers with plans to recruit for 40 new roles across sales, marketing, support and engineering over the next 24 months.
Following the company’s launch in 2010, Scurri has grown its global footprint, processing over €10.5 billion worth of shipments worldwide in 2023 alone. To date, it has raised €15.3 million in investment through Gresham House, ACT & Episode, Enterprise Ireland and private angel investors.
Scurri’s new headquarters will support both the planned expansion and staff across the UK and Europe. The company has become a leading player in the delivery management software space across Ireland, the UK and now Europe, supporting notable European eCommerce retailers.
The new headquarters was designed by Wexford architect Dermot Troy and features an on-site gym, canteen, rooftop terrace and ‘chill and connect’ rooms for staff. Scurri’s central location also ensures employees can walk everywhere as part of the company’s mission to scale sustainably whilst enabling workers to perform at their best and helping to build those all important social connections.
Another highlight of the new headquarters is its ‘Art in the Lobby’ initiative, which invites local artists to showcase their creations each month. Scurri is also a supporter of the south east tech community, recently sponsoring and hosting the re-launch of the Wexford Tech Meetup.
With a continued focus on innovation, research and development, Scurri also recently launched ‘Scurri Track Plus’ to cater for an increase in demand for post-purchase experience software. This, along with Scurri Connect for delivery management, gives retailers control over their end-to-end customer delivery experience.
Speaking about the launch of its new headquarters, Rory O’Connor, CEO and founder of Scurri said, “The opening of the office is another milestone in Scurri’s journey, which gets more and more exciting every day – particularly as Scurri has just completed a very successful 2024 trading period with over 100 million deliveries powered by Scurri technology.
“As we remain firmly focused on expansion and growth in 2024, it’s very important to create a business base that gives our team the best quality of life possible, and Wexford provides the ideal location to make that work-life balance easier to achieve. We’re very proud to have opened our new HQ in our hometown of Wexford.”
Speaking at the launch Anna Marie Turley, Manager, Entrepreneurship and High Potential Start-Ups with Enterprise Ireland said, “Enterprise Ireland is proud to have a long, fruitful relationship with the team at Scurri and we are delighted to see these remarkable headquarters officially opened today. We look forward to working with Scurri on its ambitious expansion plans into the future as it builds a truly global brand from the heart of Wexford Town.”
