300 New Jobs for Tipperary with Pharma Company Amneal

Up to 300 new jobs will be created in Cashel in Co Tipperary with US generic drugs giant Amneal.

Amneal expects to hire an estimated 250 to 300 employees, having purchased the former Johnson and Johnson plant on the Cahir Road in Cashel.

Amneal's Irish operations will be dedicated to research and development as well as the production of inhalers and biosimilars - all high-end specialty medications. The 200,000 square foot former Johnson & Johnson plant has lain idle for a number of years, but it now has a new lease of life.

The Jobs Minister Richard Bruton has described the announcement, as a massive boost for Cashel and the whole of Tipperary. The investment is supported by the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation through IDA Ireland.
