Cork investment will enable Janssen to meet critical needs of patients around the world. Some 450 construction jobs and a further 200 permanent jobs are to be created at Janssen Sciences Ireland as part of a €300m expansion.
Janssen Sciences Ireland has operated a biopharmaceutical supply chain facility on its 40 hectare site in Ringaskiddy since 2005.
The proposed expansion project includes the construction of a new manufacturing buidling, expansion of existing warehouses, labs and offices as well as carparking and internal roads.
Construction is expected to take approximately two years, beginning in October 2017. On average, up to 450 people will be employed during the construction period.
A further 200 people will be employed permanently by Janssen once the construction phase is complete.
“This expansion project is a significant vote of confidence in our team and one which will increase our manufacturing footprint very significantly, allowing us to continue to meet critical patient needs in the areas of multiple myeloma, rheumatoid arthritis and Crohn’s disease,” explained Kyran Johnson, general manager of Janssen Supply Chain Ireland.
