Novartis to set up business services centre in Dublin

Barry O'Leary, CEO, IDA Ireland

Swiss pharmaceutical company Novartis is to establish a business services centre at its Beech Hill campus in Dublin.

IDA Ireland CEO Barry O’Leary has welcomed the announcement, the second from a large Swiss company in recent weeks – Zurich Insurance also announced it was to create 112 jobs in a cyber security centre in Dublin.

Novartis is the world’s second largest pharmaceutical company and has significant existing operations in Ireland.

Nine of the top ten global and 25 of the top 50 global pharmaceutical companies have operations in Ireland, mainly involved in development and manufacturing.

IDA Ireland has already attracted a number of the world’s leading pharmaceutical companies to establish business services centres in Ireland - these include Pfizer, Merck, Lilly, Gilead, Aspen, Shire and Allergan.
