Irish pharmaceutical research company APC Ltd launches a new research facility in Cherrywood, Dublin that will also serve as the company’s new headquarters. The facility will reportedly create 100 new jobs. An Taoiseach Enda Kenny, TD officially opened the 6,000m² facility during the launch ceremony. The company’s move to Cherrywood is part of a rapid expansion as it looks to more than double its workforce, according to APC. APC reportedly partners with eight of the top 10 pharmaceutical firms and five of the top 10 biotech firms in the world and 80% of its services are export-driven. The company aims to reach revenues of €50m by 2020.

“The 100 jobs announced by APC Ltd is another vote of confidence for our pharma med tech sector. As part of our Action Plan for Jobs, we have put in place a range of measures specifically aimed at attracting research and development activity to Ireland,” says Richard Bruton, minister for jobs, enterprise and innovation.

APC Ltd is supported by Enterprise Ireland, the Government agency with a remit to support the commercialization of academic research, which provided R&D funding for the company’s team development, technology and international market access.
