Limerick jobs boost as Regeneron Pharmaceuticals set to create 200 new roles
Pharmaceuticals company Regeneron said it would create 200 new jobs in Limerick after announcing it was investing a further $350m in its bioprocessing campus there.
The company bought the old Dell computer facility in Limerick in 2013 and initially planned to create 300 jobs with a $300m investment.
Now its total investment will be $650m, and 500 jobs will be created, Regeneron said.
“The Limerick facility will play an essential role in ensuring Regeneron delivers on our mission to consistently and repeatedly bring new medicines to patients with serious diseases,” Regeneron chief executive Leonard S. Schleifer said.
Speaking at the announcement Finance Minister Michael Noonan said Regeneron’s “ambitious” expansion plans showed its commitment to the region.
