Regeneron Pharmaceuticals today announced that it will add more than 400 new jobs, bringing total headcount to over 1,400 at its Industrial Operations and Product Supply campus in the Limerick area.

The creation of more than 400 new jobs is part of Regeneron’s long-term commitment to Ireland and the Limerick community. Since 2014, Regeneron has invested over $1 billion to build the largest bulk biologics production facility in the country, with over 1,000 employees, more than 300 contingent workers and close to 500 construction personnel currently working on site. Recruitment is underway to hire full-time, high-end specialist jobs in commercial manufacturing, process sciences, quality assurance/control, supply chain and various support functions for scientists, chemists and technicians.

Taoiseach Micheál Martin said:

This significant jobs announcement by Regeneron is a further vote of confidence in the skills and talent of our workforce and provides a welcome boost to our economy. Ireland continues to resonate with leading global companies for investment. The government’s mission over the coming months and years is to rebuild our society and economy in the post- COVID world. We need to get people back to work and to protect and create sustainable jobs. This announcement is an important and welcome step in that journey.
