Winthrop Technologies to create 200 Irish jobs

Dublin-headquartered Europe-focused data centre business Winthrop Technologies Ltd surpasses turnover of €1bn.

Data centre delivery business Winthrop Technologies has revealed plans to create 200 Irish jobs in 2023 and 2024.

The business has just achieved a turnover of more than €1bn for its latest financial year to 30 April 2023.

“Our ongoing exceptional growth is a reflection of the success of the organisational strategy to focus exclusively on the data centre sector”

The roles that Winthrop Technologies are creating include multi-disciplinary engineering, project management, quantity surveying and Environmental, Health & Safety (EHS).  It also includes 30 graduate roles as part of its Graduate Programme.  

Winthrop Technologies is a dedicated data centre delivery partner providing turnkey solutions headquartered in Dublin and delivering throughout Europe. Winthrop had a turnover of over €685m in 2021 and delivered turnover of over €1bn in 2022. 

Design and deliver

Winthrop delivers Turnkey Data Centre Solutions, providing services from design through to construction across the full range of civil, structural, architectural, mechanical and electrical services as well as commissioning.   

It is currently constructing multiple Turnkey Data Centre Projects in seven different European countries, equating to over 350MW of IT load in-flight. It recently expanded into Belgium and has active projects in Ireland, Netherlands, Germany, Poland, Sweden, Spain as well as having completed projects in Norway and Switzerland.

Winthrop Technologies also has identified projects which will take them into at least two new markets in the next 12 to 18 months.

“Today’s announcement reflects the strength of demand from our key technology partners as they continue to successfully roll out their infrastructure investment plans across Europe,” said CEO Anne Dooley.

“In addition to creating 380 new jobs across Ireland and Europe, we have successfully delivered turnover in excess of €1bn in this financial year, to end April 2023, for the first time, with profitability and headcount increasing in line. Our ongoing exceptional growth is a reflection of the success of the organisational strategy to focus exclusively on the data centre sector.”

In addition to the 200 new Irish roles, the company will create an additional 180 roles across Europe to meet project demands there. 

In 2015, Winthrop Technologies pivoted to focus on the high-growth data centre space, exclusively delivering turnkey data centres, and has successfully expanded from an Irish Mechanical and Engineering Contractor to a leading, pan-European data centre delivery partner with capability to deliver across all European markets. 

“The safety of our employees and those of our supply chain partners is paramount and is the foundation of our approach on all projects,” said group managing director Bernard Keane.

“Together with a collaborative approach, a strong focus on quality and industry leading in-house commissioning expertise, we successfully partner with our clients to achieve their key project goals.  We are extremely proud of the ongoing repeat business with our valued customers and with our continued growth, it’s an exciting time to join Winthrop with opportunities to work across Europe as well as in Ireland.”
