Cashel has been given a boost with the news that the former Johnson & Johnson plant, which lay vacant for the last 4 years, has a new occupier and will bring an estimated 300 jobs to the area.
Johnson & Johnson closed the plant in 2011 and it was bought by investment firm Solidus from Singapore. Since then, Amneal Pharmaceuticals has worked with IDA Ireland to purchase the site. That purchase has now been secured and the 200,000 square foot facility will be brought back to life. When fully operational the facility will be manufacturing inhalers and other medicines with a total workforce of up to 300 people required.
As Amneal are moving into a ‘Ready-to-go’ site, these jobs will be coming live sooner than normal so do not hesitate to get your CV polished off and submitted to any department of Amneal Pharmaceuticals. Watch out for local, regional and national advertising. This is a great opportunity for anyone with manufacturing experience and is either looking change their current job or get back into the workforce. The news should be of great interest for those who may have lost their jobs when the Johnson & Johnson plant closed.
