Further jobs and production facilities planned for 2022/23
Drogheda team quality of work contributes to attracting global funding
100 new jobs have been created in BD Drogheda with a $70 million (€62million) investment in new equipment to expand its production of BD PosiFlush™ syringes at its Donore Road site.
The new 52,000sq ft facility has started production and 50 of the 100 new jobs have been filled. The remaining career opportunities will be filled in 2022/23 as production reaches full capacity. The skill sets required include engineering, production, machine operations, logistics, management and administration.
Mr Liam Dillon, BD Medical Site Director in Drogheda said the company’s ongoing investment in the Drogheda facility reflects BD’s commitment to its employees, the local community.
“We currently employ over 240 associates (staff) at the plant. Many are the second generation of family members joining the company. We see this expansion as a commitment to the local economy in Drogheda and surrounding areas. I believe that the commitment to quality by the BD team here will attract further investment from BD Global in the near future and in turn create additional career opportunities in Drogheda,” Liam said.
The investment is supported by the Irish Government through IDA Ireland.
