Wexford-based company ‘Scurri’ has received significant funding…
The company helps businesses to ship their products around the world. The company’s services include accurate labelling, shipment tracking and analytics.
The latest round of funding is set to be used to accellerate the company’s growth in the UK.
The round was led by Gresham House Ventures and brings the company’s total funding to date to €15.3m.
“Since our inception in 2010, and especially over the past five years, we have grown into a trusted delivery management platform with a growing list of blue chip and fast growth companies with operations across the globe. The pandemic and the resulting acceleration of eCommerce adoption as well as trading and logistic complexities arising from Brexit have essentially resulted in significantly increased demand for reliable delivery management software and solutions. For Scurri this effectively represents a number of years’ advancement of the UK market in terms of online penetration and hence our need to now advance our growth and investment plans.
“We are also extremely proud and thankful to our amazing team here at Scurri who, despite the upheaval of both the pandemic’s disruption as well as increased trading and logistics complexities fuelled by Brexit, rose to this double-e challenge and helped the company capitalise on the growth opportunities. We pride ourselves on our status of one of the Best Places Workplaces in Ireland and we are delighted with the opportunity to now grow that team further as we bring forward our growth plans,” CEO and Founder of Scurri, Rory O’Connor, said.
Scurri employs 45 people, and with the latest round of funding, they are hoping to triple their workforce. As per Silicon Republic, jobs will be created in fields such as engineering, product development, customer support, sales, and marketing.
Most of their employees are based at their Wexford Headquarters, which is great news for Wexford. The funding will provide an economic and jobs boost for the county.
