MSD is to develop a new biotechnology facility in Dublin, with the expected creation of up to 350 new jobs.
Known as MSD Biotech, Dublin, the facility will be constructed on an existing MSD-owned property, the site of its former facility in Swords, Co. Dublin.
MSD has been a tremendous success story in Ireland with plants located in several centres, providing valuable employment.
Martin Shanahan, CEO, IDA Ireland congratulated the company on winning this mandate for Ireland. “MSD’s decision to develop a new biotechnology facility in Dublin, with the expected creation of up to 350 new jobs greatly strengthens Ireland’s position as a global destination for manufacturing excellence in biopharmaceuticals. This announcement underpins MSD’s commitment to Ireland and follows the company’s announcement in May last year that it will create 330 new jobs and invest €280 million in its manufacturing facilities in Carlow and Cork.”
