Eurofins BioPharma Product Testing Ireland, Ltd. today opened the new extension to its laboratory facility in Dungarvan, Co Waterford. The company is located in the IDA Business Park, where the new laboratory extension expands the previously 4,300m2 facility by an additional 4,400m2, more than doubling the facility footprint and thereby providing increased capacity that will support the continued enhancement of the services offered to its clients and the ongoing growth of the business.
Eurofins’ BioPharma Product Testing Managing Director Carmel Fitzpatrick said: “The opening of the new laboratory extension today marks an important milestone in our company’s long history. For over 30 years, we have supported the pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical industry in its work to develop new medication to improve health and well-being, most recently as part of the Eurofins Group. The investment into new laboratory space is a reflection of the increased demands of our customers and at the same time testament to the positive impact the dedication and hard work of our staff have made. I am looking forward to welcoming many new colleagues to our new facility, in order to provide the continuously high standard of testing and results to our growing client base.”
Eurofins Biopharma Product Testing is already one of the major local employers in the region, employing 250 staff on site and an additional 250 staff located within clients’ facilities. With today’s opening of the lab extension, the company is looking to hire additional employees across a number of departments including, Microbiology, Pharmaceutical Chemistry, Biochemistry and their bespoke Professional Scientific Services (PSS) programme. In addition, there are opportunities in various support functions as well as attractive managerial positions for which the company is now hiring.
