Hundred new jobs for Amgen in Ireland
Fri, 27 Apr 2012
Biopharmaceutical firm Amgen yesterday began building work as part of an expansion that should create 100 new jobs at its Dun Laoghaire, Co Dublin plant, following over $200m (£123m) investment.
The construction phase will also support 350 jobs over a near two-year period.
The investment is supported by the Irish government through investment agency IDA Ireland.
Martin VanTrieste, senior vice president of quality at Amgen, says: “We applaud the Irish government and IDA Ireland for its vision in promoting innovation and science, which align with Amgen’s commitment to innovation and investing in scientific programs that make a difference for patients.”
