Irish tech company to relocate HQ to Montgomery County, PA

Dublin, Ireland-based Afilias Inc., a technology company ranked as the world’s second largest domain registry, is relocating its headquarters to Horsham, PA, in order to connect to their growing customer base in the U.S.

“We’ve long had a strong US presence,” said CEO Hal Lubsen in a Philadelphia Business Journal article. “More of the company’s shares are now owned by Americans, and our executive group is increasingly becoming American.”

The recent cut in U.S. taxes was also a draw for the company.

Afilias stated that the relocation will not affect current customers or vendors.

Other companies in the region, such as JPMorgan Chase and GSI Health are also expanding and relocating, reflecting the growth happening in businesses throughout Greater Philadelphia.
