496-1502101606000-LThis week, the US owned pharmaceutical organization Pfizer plans to submit new plans to expand their Grange Castle plant, which will lead to new jobs at their west Dublin site. The facility is one of the largest biotechnology plants in the world. It produces drugs such as Enbrel, an arthritis blockbuster, and Prevenar, which is a vaccine that prevents pneumococcal infections in children.

Pfizer plans to build a new five-story biopharma manufacturing unit. They will do this by adding over 34,500 square meters to their current structure. The plans include a warehouse facility, new lab space, and expanded parking.

The Grange Castle facility has around 1,100 employees, has an investment of $1.8 billion, and has seen several expansions since it’s opening in 2005.

In Ireland, the company employs around 3,300 people in Cork, Kildare, Dublin and Sligo.
