300 construction jobs for Tipperary?

3 D Personnel

MSD, a pharmaceutical company, has applied for planning permission for a €140m, 3,266 square metre production facility in Ballydine, Co Tipperary.  The project would employ 300 construction workers over an 18 month period.  MSD have existing production capabilities on the 33-hectare site, which they also intend to extend via another planning application.  The new plant would focus on “small volume, highly effective drugs”, thus effectively increasing the country’s R&D capabilities and reputation.
