Announcements by PepsiCo and Boston Scientific Signal Strong Confidence in Cork

Cork Chamber, the voice of business in Cork, has welcomed today’s announcement that PepsiCo is to invest €39 million into its Little Island site.
This latest investment by PepsiCo, which follows the completion of a €127 million investment at the site, will expand the company's manufacturing capacity and see the rollout of a major solar PV installation.

“PepsiCo has been a long-time employer in Cork for almost 50 years and this latest investment signals the company’s commitment to Cork and focus on a sustainable future here,” said Conor Healy, Cork Chamber CEO.

It was also very positive to see Boston Scientific’s acquisition of a facility within the IDA Business Park on Model Farm Road. A further expansion of the company’s footprint in Cork would mark another significant milestone for Boston Scientific whose growth continues to enrich and strengthen the entire region.

“The acquisition of this facility is significant and having doubled its workforce over the past five years, this announcement is a testament to Boston Scientific’s confidence in the Cork region,” said Conor Healy.

“Both of these announcements reinforce Cork's status as an attractive destination for FDI, it is essential that we work to maintain this competitive edge to secure future investments."
