At plant in Waterford, Ireland
Ardmac has been commissioned to build a new Grade 8 cleanroom at Nypro Healthcare’s new facility in Waterford, Ireland.
The new plant will manufacture advanced respiratory and injectable devices for global healthcare and pharmaceutical customers while creating more than 200 highly skilled jobs.
“We have a long-standing relationship with Nypro Healthcare following previous cleanroom works at its Bray site. The success of these projects gave both parties the confidence to work with each other again on this major project,” said Finbarr Marrett, Ardmac’s Engineering Manager.
A subsidiary of US group Nypro, Nypro Healthcare specialises in the development and manufacture of medical devices for the healthcare sector and will produce advanced respiratory and injectable devices for global healthcare and pharmaceutical customers.
Meanwhile, the Novartis plant in Liverpool, Merseyside is the location for another cleanroom and laboratory environment built by Ardmac. The facility is to be used for the development of new vaccine products by the pharmaceutical company.
