Biomaterial and polymer company Ortec is establishing its European headquarters in Co Limerick, creating up to 110 jobs.
The new facility, which will also include a manufacturing and operations centre, will be located in Newcastle West. Ortec said the highly skilled engineering and science roles will be based at its new European headquarters in Newcastle West.
The US-headquartered firm makes custom materials for medical devices, pharmaceuticals, and other health related regulated industries. It’s the company’s first investment outside the US.
“It is a strategic part of our global expansion,”
“Bringing the project to this stage has required a great deal of collaboration. We have received tremendous support from IDA Ireland, Limerick City and County Council, Shannon Properties, and a multitude of local professional advisors.”
Christopher Brotherton, Senior Vice President, Ortec
IDA Ireland chief executive Martin Shanahan said the company’s plans to quickly scale up its operations in Ireland – it plans to double its 13,000 sq ft facility if it gets planning permission – demonstrated a firm commitment that would benefit the local community.
