A multinational fire protection and security company is to establish a business services centre in Cork which is expected to create 500 over the next three years .

Tyco, the largest company of its kind in the world, closed its manufacturing facilities in the Republic five years ago with the loss of 500 jobs, but has committed to return with a new division of the business.

The new centre in Cork city is being designed to allow the company to improve efficiencies in some support functions including sourcing and procurement, customer service, research and development, information technology and finance.
