MSD investment is a testament to Carlow’s attractiveness to multinationals – Deering

16th April, 2015

“The announcement by leading healthcare company, MSD, that it is to invest €11.5 million in its Carlow site this year, is a real testament to Carlow’s attractiveness to multinationals.” says Fine Gael Carlow TD, Pat Deering.

“MSD has been a great company for Carlow and it is very promising to hear of their plans for expansion. They clearly have faith in Carlow, its talented workforce and the ongoing economic recovery.

“I know not everyone in Carlow has felt it yet but we are going in the right direction and announcements such as these can only help in that regard. Since the launch of the Government’s Action Plan for Jobs in February 2012, the Live Register in Carlow has decreased by 15%. That’s over 1,000 people back at work in just a few short years.

“MSD employs over 2,000 people in Ireland across its five sites in Dublin, Carlow, Cork, Tipperary and Wicklow. This announcement today is a strong indicator of MSD’s future at their world class facility in Carlow.”
