Cook Medical has today officially opened its new state-of-the-art research and development (R&D) Innovation Centre at its plant in Limerick, Ireland.
The Innovation Centre together, with the expansion of cleanrooms, packaging, storage and other facilities, represents an investment of €10 million by Cook Medical with the support of the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation through IDA Ireland. This commitment to R&D and a growing product pipeline has increased staff by 100 over the past two years and augurs well for additional employment in the future.
“Life sciences is a key sector targeted in our Action Plan for Jobs, and we have put in place a range of changes to support growth in this sector, such as the establishment of a Health Innovation Hub. Today’s announcement that Cook Medical is establishing a state-of-the-art innovation centre in Limerick with an investment of €10 million is a very welcome vote of confidence in the sector. I wish them every success and hope that, with the right supports from Government, we can see further growth in the future”.
Richard Bruton TD, Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation
