Irish pharma start-up Team Horizon has announced plans for its first US expansion with an office in Philadelphia. Established in 2010, the company provides engineering solutions for manufacturing organisations.
This expansion will result in the creation of 10 new jobs, with 11 additional jobs in its Irish operations.
Team Horizon has two offices in Ireland with its headquarters in Westport, along with another office in Dublin with a total Irish workforce of 55 people.
The decision to create the new office in the US with the creation of 10 jobs comes following the company project-managing over €250m in capital projects over the past four years with its aseptic fill-finish, oral dose, serialisation, and primary and secondary packaging.
“To grow a sustainable business, it was decided to create a permanent presence in the U.S. We invested significant time in assessing the North American market and researching preferred locations to establish our office. Philadelphia is home to world-class research institutes and life-science companies, including a cluster of pharma and biopharma headquarters and plants.
“Our decision was also influenced by the support we have received from economic development agencies and the Irish-American business community in Philadelphia. The quality and commitment of our staff base in Westport, Dublin and Philadelphia, will continue to be one of our most valuable assets.”
