The pharmaceutical, bio pharmaceutical and medical device industries in Ireland continue to grow strongly, and SL Controls is proud of the role it plays in these sectors. In fact, we now work with seven of the top 10 pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturing companies in the world.
These industries are a huge driver of economic growth across the country. According to IDA Ireland, the pharmaceutical industry is Ireland’s 7th largest exporter with annual exports totaling €39 billion. Around 75 pharmaceutical companies operate in Ireland and there are 40 FDA (the Food and Drug Administration in the US) approved pharma and bio-pharma plants.
At SL Controls, we work with a number of Ireland’s pharmaceutical companies as well as companies in the medical device and food and beverage industries. The fact we now count as clients seven of the top 10 pharmaceutical and medical device companies in the world is a significant milestone in our growth.
“Every one of the top 10 pharmaceutical and medical device companies in the world has a presence in Ireland and we currently work with seven of them providing controls ,validation and automation solutions,” said Darragh McMorrow, Commercial Director at SL Controls. “It’s an achievement we are proud of.”
“We continue to grow every year too, including in 2017. This year we have become an approved supplier for a number of additional end-user clients and are in the process of getting approval from several more.”
“It is an exciting time for many of the industries we provide solutions to, and we fully expect 2018 to be another growth year as we expand through our regional offices, add new suites of products to our offering, and grow our client base.”
