Wednesday, 22nd May, 2019 4:17pm

Tuesday marked the official opening of a new manufacturing facility in Cork.

The facility is owned by ILC Dover, a global leader in flexible containment solutions for the pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical industry, and is set to bring up to 70 new jobs to Leeside. On site to officially open the facility in Blarney Business Park was MEP Deirdre Clune along with ILC Dover CEO and President Fran DiNuzzo.

The 70 new roles, 30 of which have already been filled, will include management, production, quality, design and support. The project is supported by the Irish Government through IDA Ireland.

ILC Dover President and CEO, Fran DiNuzzo, said the official opening of the new Cork facility is “an important next step in our commitment to Ireland and to our pharmaceutical clients in Europe and beyond”.

ILC Dover has been operational in Cork since 2007 at a site in Little Island. The company is now actively recruiting for the new facility, with upcoming and open roles in production and quality, materials management, engineering, operators and those with experience of cleanroom environments.

The building is outfitted with 4,000 square feet of ISO class 7 clean room capacity and 6,500 square feet of class 8, both dedicated to the company’s pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical product lines.

In addition to production space, the new facility will contain state-of-the-art offices, meeting rooms and a product demonstration area for client visits.

Speaking at the official opening, MEP Deirdre Clune said: “Innovation is in the DNA of ILC Dover which operates across a number of market sectors, from developing the spacesuits that enabled Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin to walk on the moon to highly effective containment solutions for the pharmaceutical sector, the company has always driven breakthrough solutions. I am delighted to officially open the new manufacturing facility here in Cork today, and welcome the continued investment by ILC Dover in Cork.”
