Currently, the company employs 105 software designers and testing and integration engineers, the SITA newswire reported on October 6.

The president and executive director of Ixonos Plc, Kari Happonen, said it was expanding its Slovak subsidiary only a year and a half after its official opening. The company said it now knows that its selection of Slovakia was the correct decision and that it is extremely satisfied with the current performance and results of what is already its biggest foreign subsidiary. The Košice office plans to double its work volume next year and take part in bigger and more attractive projects.

Ixonos Plc. provides information and communication technology services, focusing on special client consulting, project management and software development. The company has been operating in Slovakia since February 2007, when it opened its Košice subsidiary. It is also involved in the development and testing of software for mobile devices.
