The expansion includes the construction of an 11,700 sq-metre building extension, a new production plant, an expanded warehouse and the major refurbishment of its existing buildings. As well as this, it will make a research and development investment to give its Dun Laoghaire facility a major technology process enhancement, aiming to make the plant ‘one of the leading biotechnology manufacturing sites in the world.’
