Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation
102. To ask the Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation when a company (details supplied) will be open for business in Newcastlewest, County Limerick; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [5844/19]
Ortec Inc. announced its intention to establish a European headquarters, manufacturing and operations centre in Newcastle West in 2016. The company – a biomaterial and polymer technology firm which serves the life sciences industry – has indicated that this project will help create up to 110 skilled engineering and science jobs in the region over the next several years.
IDA Ireland continues to work closely with the firm, both locally in Ireland and in the US, in support of this investment. I understand that the company remains fully committed to the project, with progress expected early this year.
