CORK IS GETTING a jobs boost, with 40 new positions coming on stream at BioMarin by 2015.
The manufacturing company is based in Shanbally, Ringaskiddy and the positions will be in manufacturing sciences and technology, facilities and engineering, quality, information technology, finance and administration.
The announcement was made today by the Minister for Jobs Richard Bruton, who was at the plant to launch the construction, validation and commissioning phase of the manufacturing operations.
Sixty-five construction jobs will also be created when the building enters its next phase in March.
Today’s announcement that BioMarin, a dynamic global biopharma company, is expanding further in Cork with the creation of jobs is a great boost for the city and for the industry. I am determined that we can see further announcements like this in the near future.
Fresh from his dinner with Bono in Davos, Barry O’Leary of IDA Ireland noted that the plant is BioMarin’s only biopharmaceutical production facility outside of its HQ in California.
