Aspen to expand

Posted by Francis O' Toole on October 3, 2012

Aspen to expand its mandate making Dublin its centre of excellence for a variety of Global and EMEA activities

I am delighted to see the continued growth of Aspen here in Ireland. Ireland provides for us a workforce with the specialised skills we require and a strong regulatory and business environment.

Stephen Saad, group Chief Executive of Aspen

Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, Richard Bruton TD, today announced that Aspen, one of the leading generic pharmaceutical companies in the world, is to create 44 new high quality jobs. The company first established an operation in Ireland in 2010 which has now become Aspen’s European Marketing and Supply Chain Headquarters; in addition the company is now establishing a global regulatory, pharmacovigilance, quality assurance and supply projects centre of excellence in Citywest. The announcement is supported by the Irish Government through IDA Ireland.

In addition to being one of the largest generic global pharmaceutical companies Aspen is also the largest producer of anti-retroviral (HIV) drugs in South Africa. The new jobs will bring Aspen’s total workforce in Ireland to 58.

Making the announcement, Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, Richard Bruton TD said:
“Pharmaceuticals is a major sector of strength for Ireland, with nine out of the top ten global companies located here. However a key part of the Government’s plan for jobs and growth is targeting the areas of growth within what is a changing sector – in particular, generics. Today’s announcement that Aspen, one of the world’s leading generic pharmaecutical companies is expanding its operations here is very welcome news. I am determined to ensure that we build on this to target further generics investments to create the jobs and growth we need”.
