A total of 250 jobs are to be created through the establishment of a pharmaceutical manufacturing facility in Carrigtwohill, Co Cork. Last month San Diego-based Sangart announced plans to hire 120 people at the facility in east Cork. However, the US company revised its figures and plans to double the workforce at the plant. The facility will serve as Sangart’s European headquarters, and the sales and manufacturing base in Europe for its MP4OX and MP4CO therapies. Brian O’Callaghan, the Cork-born, US-based chief executive of Sangart, expects to break ground on the site by the end of the year. It is hoped the plant will be fully functional by 2013.
