Cork Chamber welcomes opening of new €30 million GE Healthcare manufacturing line at Cork plant
Cork Chamber, the voice of business in Cork, warmly welcomes the opening of a new manufacturing line and 140 new jobs by GE Healthcare at its Carrigtwohill facility in Cork following a €30 million investment.
“This investment and the jobs created by GE Healthcare is great news for Cork. It’s another major investment by a global leader in the life sciences sector in Cork and shows that we continue to be the investment destination of choice for the global life sciences and pharmaceutical industry,” said Cork Chamber CEO Conor Healy.
“GE have been in Cork for almost 30 years, and this €30 million investment in a new manufacturing line shows their enduring commitment for the long term, as well as the high quality of workforce and economic environment available here for leading global companies."
“We need to continue to create the conditions in the Cork region that make these investments possible and that includes investment in sustainable transport and infrastructure including accelerating investment in delivery of new suburban rail stations and cycle ways to support continued job and investment growth in this part of East Cork."
“With continuing investment flowing into this area Government needs to revisit and reverse its decision not to fund the N25 Carrigtwohill to Midleton multi-modal route as a key enabler to continued job growth and investment in East Cork.”
