Logitech move into new offices

A local Cork girl called Molly Daly was on hand to help open the new Logitech building at City Gate Plaza in Mahon recently.

Molly is the star of the children's book ‘Molly the Mouse’, which was the result of a Logitech partnership with the charity Make-A-Wish Ireland in 2020. In 2020, Make-A-Wish granted a wish for Molly, who lives with a rare condition called Kabuki Syndrome.

The building, delivered by JCD Group, has been let to and furbished by Logitech to host its approximately 300 employees.

Tánaiste and Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment, Leo Varadkar, said: “Congratulations to Logitech on the opening of their innovative new building. The design highlights the company's sustainability-focused business approach while providing a healthier place of work for its 300 employees.

“The announcement showcases their innovation and creativity in the tech industry, and indeed that they are leaders in sustainability. I wish the team every success on this exciting new chapter for the company.”

Dara Calleary, Ireland’s Minister of State for Trade Promotion, Digital and Company Regulation said: “I’m delighted to mark the official opening of Logitech’s new office building in Cork. Logitech has long demonstrated its commitment to Cork having established here in 1988. Each and every one of us must act and make changes for a more sustainable future. Businesses have a particular role to play and it is very welcome to see companies such as Logitech make sustainability a business priority. This striking new building was developed with its people and sustainability to the fore featuring sophisticated energy consumption monitors and EV charging stations, as well as flexible use spaces for hybrid working. I wish the team at Logitech every continued success.”

Bracken Darrell, Logitech’s President and Chief Executive Officer said: “Our new Cork offices have been designed with a hybrid-first mindset, redefining how a workplace supports its teams with a variety of collaboration spaces that foster inclusivity and innovation. They are also sustainable and flexible, helping our teams be creative and productive, so in turn they can contribute more to the communities in which they live. Since its establishment, our Cork office has prioritised sustainability across all practices, while ensuring it is a place of inspiration, collaboration, and well-being for all. We’re very grateful to IDA Ireland for their consistent support over the years.”

John Cleary, CEO of JCD Group said, “It has been great working with the Logitech team and our design partners, Henry J Lyons, who are the building architects, and Wilson Architecture who designed the fit out to deliver this next generation, state-of-the-art office building.”
