Abbott Laboratories to open centre in Ireland

16th January 2006

Abbott Ireland, a subsidiary of Abbott Laboratories, is to create 600 new jobs with a new site in Galway.

The Sunday Business Post reports the company is seeking planning permission for a 16,369 square metre site on the Parkmore East Industrial Estate, Galway.

The centre is set to include a manufacturing facility, laboratories and warehouses.

The Parkmore East Industrial Estate centre was first announced in 2002, but it is believed Abbott is also considering further expansion in the area.

The Irish Industrial Development Agency has also announced the Japanese firm USCI is to set up a research, manufacturing and distribution centre in Ballinasloe, County Galway.

Micheal Martin, Irish enterprise, trade and employment minister, said: “This is excellent news for Ballinasloe.

“USCI represents another important component in the expansive medical technologies infrastructure in Ireland and continues our aim to broaden the cluster of such companies in the BMW [Border, Midland and Western] region.”
