HAVING made international headlines with its €3.4bn deal to provide barcoding services for Fastway and Parcel Connect, Scurri has won a contract with one of the world's top ten internet-based sales companies.
The Wexford town and Duncannon based company has secured the future of its 25 staff with the deal, which is set to be announced in the coming months, this newspaper can exclusively reveal.
Scurri CEO Rory O'Connor said the deal will greatly expand the company's reach into the UK market initially, adding that there is significant potential for further growth. The company secured a €6m, five year deal with Fastway and Parcel Connect in November to barcode €3.4 billion in goods. Scurri now provides barcode labelling technology to more than 15,000 Fastway customers for the next five years. The new multi million euro deal adds to the company's prestige.
Mr O'Connor said: 'It's a great deal. I can't disclose the company's name yet but it is one of the top ten global intenet companies - a household name. The deal was signed before Christmas. It may lead to more jobs. We have to get the pilot completed and then the work will begin. We had a great end to 2015. We were up on our budget which was very ambitious and we achieved all of the key metrics for investors so watch this space. This deal gives us a great grounding. It secures the jobs for the long term. We are very ambitious. We have an enterprise approach and we deal with everyone from small merchants to larger companies.'
Scurri is a cloud-based fulfilment platform that easily integrates parcel carriers and merchants, quickly and cost effectively. 90 per cent of its business is UK based.
