Ortec, Inc., a leading supplier of custom formulation and manufacturing services to the life science industry, has officially opened its European Headquarters, Manufacturing and Operations Centre in Newcastle West, County Limerick. The project is supported by the Irish Government through IDA Ireland.

The 26,000 sq ft facility is a dedicated cGMP manufacturing facility. In addition to product synthesis, other facility capabilities include USP/EP generated water, a full-service analytical laboratory, and an ISO 8/Class 100,000 Clean Room.  The site is intended to be ISO 13485 certified and will operate under FDA/EMA guidelines for production of pharmaceutical, combination, and medical device materials.

The arrival of Ortec, and the investment made by the Brotherton family from South Carolina, represents a massive vote of confidence in the region.

“We are proud to call Newcastle West our new home,” said Christopher Brotherton, Ortec, Inc. President. “From the moment of our first visit we have been welcomed. County Limerick is a great place to do business. It has the right infrastructure, work ethic, and talent pool to compete anywhere in the world.”

The company has already begun hiring and will be recruiting for additional roles in production, laboratory, and maintenance starting in December.  These positions will be listed through Collins McNicholas.

Eileen Sharpe, Global Head Growth Markets, Asia Pacific, Engineering Technologies & Green Economy, IDA Ireland, said: “The opening of Ortec Inc.’s European Headquarters here in Newcastle West is very good news for County Limerick and indeed the Mid-West region. IDA Ireland remains committed to its strategy of winning jobs and investment in regional location. I wish Ortec every success with this project.”
