High-tech Manufacturing in Ireland

Innopharma Gaduates

What is high-tech manufacturing? It’s when the manufacturing of products requires a high level of technical and scientific knowledge, advanced machinery, and a rigorous quality standard. Broadly when looking at this sector in Ireland, it covers pharmaceutical manufacturing, medical devices, and food.

Check out our Industry 4.0 certification in Advanced Manufacturing strategy.

What are the career opportunities in this sector in Ireland? They are many and varied, and seriously on the increase. The pharmaceutical manufacturing sector alone announced over 4,000 new job openings this year so far. Nine of the world’s top ten pharmaceutical companies are here in Ireland, and they continue to grow. Our medical device sector is our newest success story; Ireland is now home to 300+ companies, and we’re the second-largest exporter of medtech products in the world. Food is our biggest homegrown industry, taking the produce of our green pastures and clean waters to export all over the world. Kerry Foods alone employs over 25,000 people, 900 of these are food scientists working just outside Naas on the next global innovations in food products and ingredients.
