Amgen and the Irish Government have announced the start of a $200 million-plus expansion programme in Ireland that is expected to result in the creation of 100 jobs. The Taoiseach, Enda Kenny T.D. and the Tánaiste, Eamon Gilmore T.D. officiated at the ground-breaking ceremony, marking the commencement of a major construction programme at the Amgen plant at Pottery Road, in Dun Laoghaire, Co Dublin. The investment is supported by the Irish Government through IDA Ireland.
The $200-plus million expansion programme will include the construction of an approximately 11,700 sq m building extension, new production plant, expanded warehouse and the major refurbishment of the existing buildings. In addition, a significant research and development investment will also see the Dun Laoghaire facility undergo a major technology process enhancement to transform the plant into one of the leading biotechnology manufacturing sites in the world.
