PHILADELPHIA–()–Dr. Jiri Stejskal, President and CEO of CETRA, a leading language services provider headquartered in the US, is pleased to announce the opening of a new company location in Limerick, Ireland. CETRA Ireland Ltd. was formed as a wholly owned subsidiary of CETRA, Inc. to better serve the company’s existing clients and to further grow its EMEA client base.
CETRA is establishing its European Service Centre with the support of the Irish Development Agency and plans to create 20 jobs in Limerick over the next few years. CETRA Ireland Ltd. staff will include management, administration, project managers and sales staff.

We’re excited about expanding our business into EMEA from our Limerick base,” said Dr. Jiri Stejskal. CETRA Ireland General Manager Adrian Wall commented, “We are delighted to be part of the expansion of CETRA and the decision to base the operation in Limerick. We look forward to building on the success of the US company model within EMEA markets.”
