Drogheda is set to receive a jobs boost with 70 new jobs announced at PCI Pharma Services, a Fine Gael TD has said.
Louth Deputy Fergus O’Dowd said: “This is excellent news for the area. This state-of-the-art high contained packaging facility has already created 30 high-quality jobs locally, and now will create an additional 70 jobs.
“A further 50 new jobs will be created for its operations in Stamullen, which will hugely benefit the people and the economy of the town. We need to reduce the commute from our towns and communities and the addition of high skilled jobs will provide that.
“This announcement shows we are making progress and building on the plans outlined for Drogheda in the Ireland 2040 plan as a centre for population and growth.
“County Louth has been recognised as playing a key role in Ireland’s future development, and continued investment from international and multinational companies builds on this recognition.
“With Fine Gael in Government, unemployment has hit its lowest level in a decade, with the Live Register in County Louth reducing by over 15% in the last year alone.
“The Government is working hard to continue to get Ireland working and attracting further investment from innovative industry leaders like PCI is key to delivering more and better, sustainable jobs for the years ahead.”
