An American pharmaceutical company has confirmed that it is to buy the Pfizer manufacturing facility at Shanbally in Cork, creating over 100 jobs in the next five years.
Pfizer had announced that the facility would close in September with the loss of 65 jobs but BioMarin Pharmaceutical has agreed a €34m deal to take it over.
Welcoming the announcement, the Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, Richard Bruton TD said that the pharmaceutical sector ws one that Ireland could focus on to return to growth.
“If we are to get out of the crisis we’re in, one crucial aspect of this will be to build on our traditional strengths as an economy. The pharmaceutical industry has developed into a particular strength of the Irish economy in recent years: most of the world’s leading companies in the field have a presence here and we have developed an industry which plays a global role out of all proportion to the size of our economy.”
