Rosenbluth International opens new office in Killarney.

Rosenbluth International has opened a new office in Killarney employing six people. The company which is owned by American Express announced the closure of its Fossa call centre with the loss of 40 full time jobs in January. The six remaining jobs are understood to be highly specialised and involve interpreting travel data for corporate clients, allowing the company to get the best possible deals on travel.The job losses came after American Express decided to move to bigger more modern plants as part of a rationalisation of its business. Concern had also been expressed about duplication of workload globally. Rosenbluths new scaled down operation is located in the Killarney technology innovation centre and the company has taken over a quarter of the floor space available.Due to the success of the centre as a location for business start ups, a 4 and a half thousand square foot extension is being opened today by the minister for tourism john o Donohue. The new block incorporates eight new enterprise units with additional parking and was built at a cost of 460,000 euro.
