Published on: Monday, 09 January 2012

Allergan Pharmaceuticals Ireland announced today that it is to invest $350 million in its Westport operation to expand both its development and manufacturing capabilities. The expansion will result in the creation of approximately 200 new jobs at the site over the next four years and an estimated 250 indirect jobs locally, during the construction period.  This investment will enable Allergan to expand the manufacturing capacity for BOTOX ® (botulinum toxin type A) and to develop a manufacturing base for the next generation of biologic products currently in the Allergan pipeline.

The investment is supported by IDA Ireland, where you can read more.
