Amcor, a global leader in developing and producing responsible packaging solutions, has announced an investment to establish new thermoforming capabilities for medical packaging in its healthcare packaging facility at Sligo in Ireland. The multi-million-euro investment is expected to double the revenue of the site, increase the site’s footprint and create approximately 75 new jobs. It will also strengthen Amcor’s leadership in the growing industry for sterile packaging, offering customers in Europe and North America another site with comprehensive healthcare solutions.

Through this investment, the Sligo site will feature Class 7 cleanroom manufacturing environments and state-of-the art thermoforming operations, fully certified to ISO 13485 standards and meeting the highest regulatory requirements. Amcor will also create a full design studio to support product development, enabling customers to tap into local and global expertise and resources across the company’s growing network of global innovation centres and thermoforming facilities in Mankato and Puerto Rico, North America.

“The additional capabilities in our Sligo site allow us to provide customers with even more differentiated and efficient solutions to meet their healthcare packaging needs,” said Amcor’s Chief Commercial Officer Peter Konieczny. “With our global scale and innovation capabilities, Amcor is uniquely positioned to capture growing demand for both medical and pharmaceutical packaging products globally.”

According to Market Data Forecast, the European medical device segment, which relies on this type of packaging, is expected to grow at annual rate of more than 4%, reaching $171 billion by 2027. With this investment in Ireland and the new facility in Singapore that came online at the end of 2021, Amcor is actively meeting the growing global demands of customers in the medical and pharmaceutical industries.

The creation of the approximately 75 new jobs will include roles such as Machine Operators, Manufacturing Technicians, Team Leads and experts in the Engineering (Project, Process, Design), Maintenance, Quality Assurance, Sales and Supply Chain field. Jobs will be advertised in phases from mid-April 2022 onwards through Interested candidates can also express their interest by emailing
