Minister of State for Trade, Employment and Business, Pat Breen today announced that Johnson & Johnson Vision Care (Ireland) will be adding approximately 100 new roles as part of about a €100m expansion of its manufacturing operations at its site in the National Technology Park, Plassey, Limerick.

Approximately 200 additional workers are expected to be employed in the construction phase of the expansion to the company’s Vision Care facility.

Johnson & Johnson Vision aims to bring improved eyesight to people through research, development and manufacturing of new medical device technologies. The company believe that the new manufacturing roles being introduced in Limerick in 2019 will be foundational in helping bring new, innovative contact lens products to patients and customers around the world at an industry-leading pace.

It is a huge vote of confidence in the Mid-West region.
