Last year we mentioned that Genzyme in Waterford had plans on expansion. Genzyme (www.genzyme.com) employs around 10,000 people in the United States alone. They are a Massachusetts based company, based out of Cambridge near Boston. Producing drugs since 1981 to fight rare genetic disorders, kidney disease and cancer.
It now seems that the initial 52 jobs increase, will look more like 170 jobs (over 300% more than we reported). The plant will then employ around 600 people, who are responsible for manufacturing various pharmaceutical drugs like Renagel used in chronic kidney diseases.
So if you are looking for a pharmaceutical job in Waterford, it’s time to dust off your CV.
