Located in an Irish pharmaceuticals hub on the outskirts of Cork, the company’s plant in Carrigtwohill, is a modern ‘bulk tablet’ facility manufacturing solid and capsule formulations, to deliver life-changing medicines in key therapeutic areas such as oncology and virology. From its beginnings in 2001, this state-of-the-art, multi-purpose facility has adapted and grown to almost 14,000 sq. m.
Innovative new technologies, in combination with the depth of expertise that exists within the local workforce, has allowed those based there to develop and deliver products and processes to support AbbVie’s wider global needs. These range from small-scale clinical trial supply to large-scale commercial manufacturing.
