One of Cork’s largest employers, E-M-C, has applied for planning permission to expand its existing facility in the townland of Ovens.

The US multinational has submitted a planning application to Cork County Council to build a data centre and 4-storey office block. The company is also seeking planning for a multi-storey car park.

EMC say if permission is granted then construction would begin within a 10-year period.

Globally EMC employs more than 65-thousand people globally, and has 3,000 employees in Ireland.

Minister of State for Data Protection is Cork TD Dara Murphy, who has today welcomed the news
