31 May 2017
A healthcare company in Sligo is making a €10 million investment to move premises in the town which will allow future expansion, reports the Leitrim Observer.
“I am delighted that Abbott is relocating its 100 staff members to Finisklin and investing €10 million in the move”, local Fine Gael TD Tony McLoughlin has said.
“Relocating to IDA Ireland’s purpose built Advance Technology building here in Finisklin gives Abbott the potential to expand and create new jobs in Sligo in the future.”
“In addition, Abbott’s decision to locate to the new facility sends out a really positive message to potential international investors that Sligo is open for business and has world class facilities to help ensure their success.”
“Abbott, and its sister company Abbvie, are major employers in Sligo and the wider region, with four other factories located in the town.”
Abbott employs nearly 3,000 people across ten sites in Ireland, manufacturing a range of science-based nutritional products, diagnostic tools and medical devices.http://www.engineersjournal.ie/2017/05/31/sligo-healthcare-company-abbott-makes-e10-million-investment/http://www.engineersjournal.ie/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/engineers-journal-news.pnghttp://www.engineersjournal.ie/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/engineers-journal-news-300x225.pngNewsAbbott Ireland,healthcare,medical devices,Sligo
