An Ireland-based cyber-security and payments industry firm has opened its Brookhaven location, which will eventually create 500 jobs for DeKalb County.
Sysnet Global Solutions intends to invest $2 million with the Brookhaven center in the Perimeter Summit development.
Numerous officials and community leaders were on hand for a ceremony at the site Thursday, including Brookhaven Mayor John Ernst.
He’s said he’s excited to have the company in town. “Five hundred plus jobs is always a great sign of a vibrant economy,” he said in January.
Gov. Nathan Deal, who announced that the company was coming in January, counts it as further evidence of Georgia’s strengths.
“Georgia has become an established hub for the financial technology industry and I am confident that Sysnet Global Solutions will find the resources necessary to thrive here,” said Deal, who traveled to Ireland to stump for Georgia development. “By choosing Georgia for this call center, Sysnet will tap in to our world-class infrastructure network and generate new jobs for DeKalb County."
Officials with the Dublin-based company chose DeKalb to plug Sysnet into the North America market with the 24-hour, multilingual help center.
