West Launches New Medical Devices Plant

West Pharmaceutical Services with support from Ardmac, a construction services firm headquartered in Dublin, Ireland, has opened a new medical device facility in Damastown, County Dublin, which was built in response to demand for medical device manufacturing.

The 60,000 square-foot building includes new cleanrooms, production, warehousing, office support, and canteen along with associated site facilities. The expansion is expected to meet demand for medical device manufacturing, especially for diabetes treatment. West anticipates 100 new jobs will be added to the business over the next five years as a result of the expansion.

“As the healthcare market becomes increasingly complex, West is advancing our core competencies in the development, manufacturing, and final packaging of complex drug delivery systems and diagnostic devices for our customers,” said Karen Flynn, senior vice president and chief commercial officer, West, in a statement. “We are excited about the growth and expansion we are experiencing in both our contract manufacturing business in Dublin as well as our proprietary products business in Waterford, both of which will support increasing demand from our global customer base.”
