The Kells Enterprise & Technology Centre opened its doors in 2006 with support from Meath Co Co, Meath County Enterprise Board and Enterprise Ireland. The purpose of the development was to provide premium quality high tech workspace to start-ups and SME’s at affordable prices.
The KETC, which was once home to Quinn Direct, has a number of tenants providing services in telecommunications, web design, digital marketing, financial services, temperature control systems, beauty / health training & development, civil engineering consultancy, business and start-up training / development and mentoring.
The Kells Enterprise & Technology Centre has also hosted various events over the years including the first ever Pure Road Race Exhibition, which took place at the KETC in October 2010 in conjunction with Kells Road Races.
In November 2013 the Kells Enterprise & Technology Centre hosted the hugely successful Kells Business & Jobs Expo. The Kells Business Expo saw almost 500 people pass through the doors of the Kells Enterprise & Technology Centre on the day with over 60 exhibitors (local businesses and all the leading state agencies), multiple seminars, workshops, free advice clinics and keynote speakers that included John Bruton.
The Kells Business Expo was part of the innovative ‘Enterprise Town’ initiative which was supported by Bank of Ireland and the KETC worked very closely with BOI, local Chambers of Commerce, the wider business community, Meath CEB, Meath Co Co and local media to make the Enterprise Town initiative and the Kells Business & Jobs Expo the massive success that it was.
The Kells Enterprise & Technology Centre can and will play an important part in the development of commercial and social enterprise in the region and we are always available to provide you with the help, support or guidance needed to get started.
