Johnson & Johnson Vision Announces Approximately 100 Jobs and Expansion for Limerick Facility

Johnson & Johnson Vision has announced that it is to create approximately 100 new jobs at its Limerick facility, as part of an expansion investment of about €100 million. The growth will also lead to the temporary creation of roughly 200 jobs while the facility undergoes its construction.

The development will benefit the economy of the region immensely, with Pat Breen TD, Miniter of State for Trade, Employment & Business, labelling the expansion as a "huge vote of confidence in the Mid-West region." The development will see the expansion of what is already the world's largest contact lenses manufacturing plant. Martin Shanahan, CEO of IDA Ireland, has expressed that having a company of Johnson & Johnson's stature make such a commitment to the Limerick region speaks to a bright future for the medical technology industry in the country. He added that it also serves as a testament to the success global companies can achieve in regional locations.

John Lynch, Plant Leader, is confident that the new manufacturing roles, which will be introduced from 2019, will help the company to "bring new, innovative contact lens products to our patients and customers around the world at an industry-leading pace."
