The Invest in Ireland Awards took place last week at a gala ceremony in the Mansion House in Dublin. The inaugural event honoured some of the most prominent names in Ireland’s foreign direct investment sector.
The Grand Prix winner was Regeneron, whose bulk biologics production facility in Limerick is the largest in Ireland. The company has expanded rapidly in five short years since first announcing plans to establish operations in Ireland. To date, Regeneron’s investment here totals $750 million and employment at the Limerick campus now stands at 800+ people. The company also won in the category of ‘Excellence in Regional Investment’.
Eamonn Sinnott, Vice President and General Manager at Intel Ireland, received the Lifetime Achievement prize, also known as the ‘FDI Hero 2018 Award’. Since taking up the post at the helm of Intel Ireland in 2010, Eamonn has built and led the largest industrial investment in the history of the Irish State. In January 2011, he announced the beginning of upgrade works at Intel’s campus in Leixlip co Kildare at a cost of €5 billion. Since 1989, Intel has invested a total of $13.9 billion in Ireland creating the most advanced industrial campus in Europe. Today, alongside advanced manufacturing, Intel in Ireland has come to represent a diversity of activities across the spectrum of Intel business from cutting edge research to design. Intel has 4,500 employees across Ireland in Leixlip, Co. Kildare and in Shannon, Co. Clare.
