Pharma firm Mylan to recruit 500 in Ireland by 2016
Thu, 19 Apr 2012
Pharmaceutical firm Mylan will expand its operations in Dublin and Galway, adding 500 jobs by 2016 as part of a €76m (£62.3m) investment in the firm.
The firm currently employs around 700 in Ireland, and the expansion involves R&D and manufacturing capabilities within its company's respiratory, injectables and oral solids franchises.
Of the new jobs, they will be split near-equally between the two sites, with Dublin taking around 280 of the jobs.
The announcement follows initiatives from government investment agency IDA Ireland, which has been active for over 40 years, and itself is supported by the government’s new Action Plan. The plan aims to create 100,000 jobs by 2016
