Press Release 27 Mar 2017

Waterford, Friday, September 19th 2014 – The official ribbon cutting at medical device company NuVasive Ireland’s new offices took place today in Waterford City.

Earlier this year the company announced that it was setting up in Waterford with the creation of up to 30 highly skilled roles over the next two to three years in the areas of customer service, supply chain, accounting and IT. The investment is supported by the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation through IDA Ireland.

The ribbon-cutting ceremony was performed at the company’s offices at Wallace House, Maritana Gate in Waterford city by Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Alex Lukianov and Minister of State Paudie Coffey TD.

Speaking at the opening, the company’s Chairman and CEO Alex Lukianov, who travelled from the US with other senior company officials said  “It’s great to be here for the opening of our new offices. We are thrilled to be located in Waterford.  It gives us access to the strong local talent to support our international operations. The support we’ve had in Ireland has been fantastic and I’d like to extend my thanks to everyone including those present here today.  We are excited to grow our presence in the area and to improve our international business.”

Minister of State Paudie Coffey TD said “I am delighted to officially open NuVasive’s new offices in Waterford City.  This is a sign of confidence in the talents, skills and expertise that the people of Waterford have to offer.  I want to thank the Chairman and CEO of NuVasive for deciding on Waterford as a location and also commend the work of the IDA in assisting with today’s announcement.  Today is another sign that the local and regional economy in the South East is in recovery mode. It also shows that the Government’s Action Plan for Jobs is working with over 90% of all of its targets met on time.”

IDA CEO Martin Shanahan said “Nuvasive’s decision to locate a new operations centre in Waterford represents a very positive result for the city and area and I welcome it and wish them every success as they cut the ribbon on their new offices today.
