Foster opens new office for leading software services firm


Enterprise Minister Arlene Foster has officially opened Ignition Team’s new offices in Belfast.

Ignition Team is a specialist division of Singularity, the Londonderry-based global business process software innovator. Ignition Team provides professional services and software solutions which help clients across the UK and Europe to transform their business by increasing efficiencies and effectiveness.

Arlene Foster said: “Having announced the major expansion by Singularity almost three years ago, it is very positive to see how it is now coming to fruition, delivering high quality employment in both Londonderry and Belfast.

“A division of an established and globally respected indigenous software innovator, Ignition Team has now developed its own strong brand identity and presence in UK and European markets. The 36 people based at these new offices in Belfast offer a range of high end, world class and innovative services to an impressive range of companies across key industry sectors.

“The ICT sector remains one of our strongest, mainly because of the impressive local skills base, as well as new and repeat investment by locally owned and inward investors secured by Invest Northern Ireland.

“Many of our home grown companies like Ignition Team and Singularity have become global names because of their continued focus on innovation, trade and ongoing skills development. I hope that these new premises support Ignition Team as it continues to target new business opportunities in key export markets.”

Robert McGarry, General Manager of Ignition Team said: “Ignition Team has over the past five years, grown into one of the leading software services companies in the UK. We now have some of the brightest, most talented people managing the needs of a diverse and rapidly growing customer base across the UK and beyond. The new offices have already enabled Ignition Team to ramp up recruitment and bring new staff on board quickly so we can continue to accelerate growth.”
