Flexible containment solutions provider ILC Dover is expanding its Irish production footprint by opening a location in Blarney, County Cork, Ireland.

The building will be operational in Q1 2019 and outfitted with 4,000ft2 of ISO 7 cleanroom capacity and 6,500ft2 of Class 8, both dedicated to the company’s pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical product lines.

The market for our products is experiencing incredible growth and this expansion will ensure we can keep up with the growing demand for the high-quality products used in manufacturing lifesaving therapies.”   

In addition to production space, the new facility will contain state-of-the-art offices, meeting rooms and a product demonstration area for client visits.
