 PROJECT WATCH 

IRELAND

Austin, Texas–based Forcepoint, a global leader in cybersecurity, has opened a new software engineering facility in Cork, Ireland. The new facility will create 100 jobs focused on new product development in cloud and endpoint cybersecurity. Forcepoint cited the availability of skilled labor — a strength long familiar to other sectors such as pharmaceuticals — in its decision to locate in Cork. The company also received support from IDA Ireland.

KENYA

Isuzu East Africa and its partner Kenya Coach Industry have opened a new manufacturing facility in Nairobi to fabricate bus chassis and bodies. The new facility will employee 300 people and manufacture approximately 100 bus and truck bodies each month. Isuzu has invested $7 million in the new facility, which also serves as a sales and service location for Isuzu motor vehicles. Nairobi ranked highly in JLL's City Momentum Index not long ago, and last year placed well in several categories in the World's Most Competitive Cities report.
