WATERFORD IS SET to get 200 new jobs.

It comes following an announcement by Nypro Healthcare that they are to set up a medical device manufacturing facility, which will make respiratory and injectable devices for global healthcare and pharmaceutical customers.

Among the new positions to be created are healthcare automation engineers and technicians, healthcare quality engineers and technicians, operations managers, program managers, team leaders and operators.

“The South East has suffered disproportionately from unemployment over the years and… the creation of over 200 high-end jobs is an enormous boost for the region,” said Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, Richard Bruton.

It is the second jobs announcement by the company, after Nypro said they were to create 100 jobs for their medical devices centre in Bray, Co Wicklow in December.

“Our latest growth phase is built upon the skills, work ethic, creativity and drive of our Nypro Ireland team,” James O’ Gorman, Vice President, Drug Delivery and Diagnostics of Nypro Healthcare.
