DHL has opened a new pharmaceutical grade facility in Ireland which it says will extend its global end-to-end pharmaceutical supply chain capability.

The Dublin Airport-based site has received full approval from the Health Products Regulatory Authority (HPRA).

DHL said that it expects that the centre will create up to 50 jobs over the coming months.

Ireland is already the manufacturing home for nine out of ten of the top global pharmaceutical companies and nine out of the top ten biopharmaceutical companies.
