Cork Chamber welcomes €60 million AbbVie investment in Cork
Cork Chamber, the voice of business in Cork, welcomes the new €60 million investment by Biopharma company AbbVie in its plant in Carrigtwohill that will create 70 new jobs.
“This is another boost for the booming life sciences sector in Cork. This €60 million investment by AbbVie in its Carrigtwohill plant highlights the continued dedication of biopharma and life sciences companies to the Cork region. It also provides the strong vote of confidence in our city region’s attractive economic environment and highly skilled workforce,” said Conor Healy, CEO Cork Chamber.
“With Cork’s recent designation to be a carbon-neutral city by 2030, it is especially encouraging to see a multinational company like AbbVie investing in reducing the carbon footprint of their site,” he continued.
“To continue to attract and accommodate investment into our region, sustainable transport and infrastructure must be provided. Government must reverse the decision to not fund the N25 Carrigtwohill to Midleton multi-modal route given the level of investment flowing into the area. The acceleration of delivery of new suburban rail stations and cycle ways is necessary to ensure continued support for current and future growth in East Cork.”
