200 new jobs on the way for Cork with Janssen

Pharma company Janssen Sciences Ireland has announced a €300 million expansion of its Ringaskiddy facility in Cork harbour, and the creation of 200 new jobs.

Janssen is a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson. An additional 450 jobs will be created during the construction phase, which is due to begin later this month and is expected to take two years.

In a statement issued by Janssen, General Manager, Kyran Johnson said the expansion will allow the company to meet demand for its drugs in the areas of multiple myeloma, rheumatoid arthritis and Crohn's disease.

Janssen Sciences Ireland UC has operated a bio-pharmaceutical facility on its 40 hectare site at Ringaskiddy since 2005, with 555 people currently employed at the site. Johnson & Johnson employs more than 2,700 people overall at 11 sites across Ireland.


Details of current vacancies and career opportunities with Janssen are available here.

The announcement has been welcomed by Tánaiste and Minister for Business, Enterprise & Innovation, Frances Fitzgerald and the CEO of IDA Martin Shanahan, who said it will have a significant economic impact on the south west region.
