Congratulating Repligen on the announcement this morning that they are to create an additional 130 jobs, Gerald Hurley, CEO Waterford Chamber says this is a huge vote of confidence by the US based life sciences company.

“This announcement is hugely significant not just in terms of jobs but also in terms of the green agenda and Waterford’s bid to become a decarbonised city. The incredible new facility acquired by Repligen, a 33,000 square foot LEED Silver building, is at the forefront in terms of energy efficiency and the IDA must be complimented on creating a plant with the green agenda at its core.

“We are delighted for Managing Director Jonathan Downey, who recently became a Director of Waterford Chamber, and his extended team. This expansion adds to Waterford and the South East’s reputation as a leading hub for life sciences and coupled with the recent jobs announcement from Bausch + Lomb, there has never been a better time to consider relocating to the region.”
