Get the Shifts and Titan Solutions join Guaranteed Irish
Guaranteed Irish, the not-for-profit business membership organisation championing homegrown and international businesses in Ireland, is delighted to announce that Shannon based technology companies Get the Shifts and Titan Solutions have joined the organisation.
Get the Shifts, which was established in 2016, provides temporary staff for bars, restaurants and other hospitality events. The company recruits and trains staff who are then made available to businesses as they need them via the Get the Shifts app. The company plans to recruit 700 people over the next 12 months.
Founded in 2011, Titan Solutions is a supply chain solutions and management company whose suite of service offerings transform supply chains from SMEs to multinationals across all industries. Titan Solutions works with companies in Ireland and around the globe in supply chain management programs, freight and warehousing services, inventory optimisation, and distribution network analysis and design.
Titan also works with American companies on redeveloping their EU business and distribution model. Most recently, they worked with AVTECH, a Rhode Island, USA, based computer hardware developer and manufacturer, in launching a new global distribution centre in Shannon, Co Clare.
Brid O’Connell, CEO of Guaranteed Irish, says she is delighted to welcome Get The Shifts and Titan Solutions to the organisation: “A number of great companies from the Shannon area and wider region are already members of Guaranteed Irish and we are now delighted to welcome Get The Shifts and Titan Solutions on board.
