Tipperary has a huge deal to offer multinational companies like Amneal and I look forward to assisting them as they set up their Cashel site. Access to talent and good infrastructure are vital for investments of this size – Amneal will find both here in Tipperary.
“The news will be a great boost to the county and the Cashel in general which will see the site dedicated to R&D and production of metered dose and dry powder inhalers (MDIs and DPIs) as well as biosimilars – all high-end specialty medications. In other words, world-class products being made and produced in the county.
