List of 212 Pharma and Med Device Factories by County in Ireland

NOTE: It took almost 7 years of research to build this table. And we try hard to keep this information as accurate as possible. But employee numbers go up and go down. So if you know of a company we’ve missed or see data that needs correction, please contact us.
