download70 new jobs are to be created at Merck in Co. Cork. The announcement comes after the medical science and technology company officially opened  their new manufacturing and R&D facilities at their key strategic site in Carrigtwohill, Co Cork on Tuesday.

Martin McAuliffe, site leader, says the speciality membrane facility (SMF) and chromatography media facility (CMF) represents a € 55million investment in Merck’s Cork operation, reinforcing the strategic importance of the Carrigtwohill site to the wider Merck Group.

“We are adding R&D capability to develop and scale up. A plant in the US is closing so the development of membranes will be done in Cork.We also do antibody development on-site. We will be adding 60 to 70 new positions initially with additional positions in the next 18 months.”

Roles in general manufacturing, R&D, engineering, chemistry, microbiology and quality assurance are being created. This will add to the already 700 people employed at Merck’s Cork operation, with 400 construction workers to be employed to build the two specialist centres.
