The new facility, which is expected to create 200 highly skilled jobs, will house a team initially focused on developing software for the company’s Land Mobile Radio (LMR) portfolio.

New Motorola Solutions R&D centre

Motorola Solutions has deployed more than 13,000 LMR networks worldwide.
The company’s solutions are trusted by governments and businesses for highly secure communications designed to operate in the most extreme conditions.
“Decade after decade, the durability of our mission-critical LMR technology helps protect those who protect us all,” said Greg Brown, chairman and CEO, Motorola Solutions. “Our new centre in Cork will help drive our future vision for LMR, while building on the collective impact of our more than 20,000 employees who are innovating what’s next for our customers around the world.”
The new R&D centre complements Motorola Solutions’ existing presence in Ireland, which is focused on delivering the emergency services communications network – Ireland’s National Digital Radio Service.

Highly skilled talent in Ireland

“Motorola Solutions is an iconic American company known for its work over many decades in support of public safety and first responders,” said US Ambassador to Ireland Claire D. Cronin. “Today’s announcement of its new research and development centre in Cork marks a significant step forward in the company’s commitment to Ireland and to further expanding its innovation footprint in technologies that play a critical role around the world in keeping people safe today and in the future. “It also recognises the highly skilled talent in Ireland and further strengthens the strong trade and investment relationship between the United States and Ireland.”

The investment is supported by the Irish Government through IDA Ireland.
