Great news for Clare as The Irish Times have today reported that US biopharma company Beckman Coulter is to consolidate its staff numbers in Ireland following the closure of its Galway plant by expanding its plant outside Tulla, Co Clare to accommodate a further 105 staff.
Last year, Beckman Coulter announced a major blow for Galway by ceasing its operations in the county, resulting in the loss of 140 jobs.
Now, however, according to The Irish Times, the company is looking to turn around its fortunes by expanding its facility in the neighbouring county by 105 staff.
The expanded facility will allow Beckman Coulter to facilitate its plan to begin production of its urine testing kits in 2017 with a production estimate of 800,000 by 2023.
The documents filed to the council described the development as a “genuinely sustainable business”, before going to say that it will “inject millions into the local economy and sustainability of local, rural and urban economies”.
The company also added that the facility will not harm the surrounding environment.
