The development will mean 130 workers at the plants will lose their jobs, according to a statement from the company this afternoon.

A further 30 jobs are expected to go at BMS’ Swords site in a decision that reflects “changing market demand”.

However, the pharmaceutical firm says it remains committed to its Swords facility which currently employs 320 staff.

Bristol-Myers Squibb will continue manufacturing at the Cruiserath facility until the end of 2015.

General Manager API Operations Ireland Susan Hynes said: "The company is working with IDA Ireland to explore potential future uses of the Cruiserath facility and will endeavour to minimise job losses in Ireland."
