Residing across two floors at 76 Sir John Rogerson’s Quay in the city’s Docklands, Trinseo’s new GBS is in one of the most attractive waterfront properties in the South Docklands within the newly developed office building.
Frank Bozich, Trinseo President & CEO, said: "Trinseo’s move to establish a significant base in Ireland is a huge step forward as we continue to transform into a higher-growth, higher-margin and less-cyclical specialty materials and sustainable solutions provider to better serve our customers worldwide. We’re delighted to be in Ireland and open our offices in Dublin. We’re proud to become part of a rich community of high-calibre, high-growth companies in a dynamic and vibrant city business hub which is home to some of the world’s biggest companies."
Established in 2010, Trinseo has grown to become a leading global specialty materials solutions provider with a focus on delivering innovative, sustainable and best-in-class materials to unlock value for companies. Last October, the company announced its plans to establish its new Global Business Services function in Dublin City Centre and launched a major recruitment initiative to fill more than 100 highly skilled roles across many facets of finance, procurement, cash collections and IT.
Tanaiste and Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment, Leo Varadkar TD, said: "Congratulations to the Trinseo team and the very best of luck with this new office. I’m glad to see you will still be promoting a flexible working environment, for the more than 120 new staff you’ve hired since deciding to invest here. It’s a great vote of confidence in Dublin City and underlines our attractiveness as a base. It’s a pleasure to be here in person to warmly welcome the new team as they embark on their new careers. The very best of luck with this expansion."
Speaking at the new office opening, Lori Wilcox, Global Business Services Leader said: "Since announcing our arrival in Ireland last year, we have been focused on building a stellar team of diverse and talented people for our Global Business Services function who share in our vision for the future, our values and our culture. Our ambition is to cement Trinseo as a great place to work locally. We want to grow our team with us and enable them to enjoy a rewarding career with a global company.
The new office is a fantastic multifunctional space where staff can connect and collaborate as part of our flexible ways of working and I’m delighted to welcome everyone here today. It’s an exciting time for Trinseo, and we’re proud to become part of the City of Dublin."
Martin Shanahan, CEO, IDA Ireland said: "Trinseo was attracted to Ireland due to the country’s international reputation as a location where companies can quickly establish their operations – this is evidenced by the fact that the company has added 120 talented people to its team here in less than a year. I would like to wish Trinseo continued success and our ongoing support as they further develop their business from Ireland."
