Edwards Lifesciences’ Limerick Journey to Date

  • Publish Date: Posted over 2 years ago

It has been a fantastic recruitment journey to date that we have taken with Edwards Lifesciences over the last few years, with more exciting and busy times to come.

Edwards Lifesciences is a US multinational medical device company that set up its first European site in Shannon, Co Clare in January 2018. This facility in Shannon was set up to support their rapidly expanding manufacturing operations in Irvine and Utah in California, USA and announced in 2019 that it was building a purpose-built manufacturing facility in Castletroy.

In 2018, Edwards Lifesciences created 90 jobs with plans to have 600 staff in place by 2021. Today, on Friday, October 22nd, that commitment has been achieved with plans to now add an additional 250 jobs over the next four years.

​Significant further growth is expected over the coming months and years and Collins McNicholas will be directly assisting with this expansion and recruitment ramp up.
