Abbott jobs boost must be supported by state and council – Pat the Cope

first_imgDeputy Pat the Cope Gallagher has today welcomed this week’s news from Abbott Pharmaceutical that they are to create up to 500 new jobs in Donegal. The Donegal Deputy said the news is a massive vote of confidence for the region, and has called on state agencies and the local authority to ‘leave no stone unturned’ in order to facilitate the growth. Abbotts have a long and successful history in Donegal Town, where they are one of the area’s main employers for many years. This week’s jobs announcement has been greeted by Pat the Cope as ‘just the level of investment the area requires’.He said: “It is now going to be essential that all state agencies and the local authority work closely together in order to put in place all that will be required to have this plant fully operational in the time scale outlined by Abbotts. “This a massive opportunity for Donegal to show how proactive and progressive we are in delivering projects from planning stage to operational level, no stone must be left unturned in facilitating this plant for the Donegal town area and surrounding regions. “These are key jobs at a critical time for us in Donegal.” Pat the Cope congratulated Abbotts for choosing to expand at the Lurganboy Donegal site, which has been in operation since 2006.“The Lurganboy site is a centre of excellence for blood glucose monitoring equipment, and this has been achieved over the years through solid investment by Abbotts and the commitment of a very dedicated workforce at the plant,” said Pat the Cope. Abbott jobs boost must be supported by state and council – Pat the Cope was last modified: July 24th, 2018 by Rachel McLaughlinShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:AbbottDonegal TownPat The Cope Gallagherlast_img
