"The availability of this range of clinical and pharmaceutical services will increase the attractiveness of Ireland as an international base for early stage speciality Biopharma companies," said CEO of IDA Ireland Martin Shanahan.

"It demonstrates a strong commitment by the company to its Irish operations with 70 new jobs being created at this facility in Drogheda on top of the 30 already there and a further 50 jobs being added to its facility in Stamullen, Co. Meath.

"It is also proof that Ireland is viewed as an attractive location in Europe for global companies seeking to provide stability around the evolving Brexit situation.

"I congratulate President and CEO Bill Mitchell and his team and wish them continued success with their operations here."
