Nasdaq listed Regeneron Pharmaceuticals intends to add 300 jobs at its Industrial Operations and Product Supply bioprocessing campus in Limerick, which will increase employment at the site to 800 people.
The expansion project, with a stated investment cost of $100m, is being part-funded by taxpayers through IDA Ireland.
Recruitment is ongoing for high-end specialist positions in commercial manufacturing, process sciences, quality assurance/control/validation and various support functions.
The additional investment will support the construction of a number of manufacturing suites to increase drug substance production capacity and enable the company to meet demand for its medicines.
General manager Dan Van Plew said: “Gut feel is a large portion of any site selection. When we picked Limerick years ago, we simply felt good about the community, universities and people. A few years and a lot of experience later, I can now confidently say I know Limerick is a place where you can build and thrive as a biotech.
