Construction has started on a new Advance Technology Building in Waterford City.
It’s located in the Waterford Business & Technology Park in Butlerstown.
Brendan McDonald is the South East Regional Manager for the IDA:
“I’m delighted to be able to say we’ve broken ground on the site and construction has started. We’re very invested locally in getting another new name company to come here and set up in that building when it’s operational.”
He says they have a proven track record in this area:
“When Eirgen Pharma, which was taken over by Opko Healthcare, they then purchased our first Advanced Manufacturing facility, which was the first one that IDA built in Ireland and that was in Waterford…and we’re looking for another client company to fill this one when it’s built in 11 months time.”
