Eli Lilly to create 200 Kinsale jobs
27 February 2012
Pharmaceutical company Eli Lilly has announced an investment of €330m at a new plant in Kinsale in Co Cork, Ireland.
The plant will manufacture next generation of treatments for illnesses such as cancer and diabetes.
Approx 300 jobs will be created during construction, while the plant will need 200 skilled employees when it is fully operational in 2016.
The US company has had a manufacturing facility in Dunderrow near Kinsale since 1981.
It currently employs around 700 people at four plants in Ireland in Kinsale, Cork City, Sligo and Dublin.
The 240,000 sq.ft biopharmaceutical plant will be the second large investment the company has made in Ireland in recent years.
The biopharmaceutical industry is one identified by the Government in its Action Plan for Jobs.
Ireland is the second biggest location outside of the United States for these next generation drugs.
Borer's FUSION Time Recording System
With a high number of employees on payroll, using Borer's FUSION Time Recording System will help reduce management involvement and the administrative effort required to manage a time management scheme.
It is labour demanding to manage and maintain a centrally administered or paper based flexitime system. Invariably, queries arise in relation to flexi balances and the process can become a very complicated one, particularly for the HR department.
Implementing an automated time and attendance system makes things very easy for both employees and their managers alike.
