50 Pharma Jobs Expected In Co Waterford

A new pharmaceutical manufacturing company is expected to create 50 new jobs in Lismore, Co Waterford.

The company, QM Specials, a subsidiary of UK-based Quantum Specials, has been granted a license by the Irish Medicines Board to produce a range of 'special' medicines.

These include bespoke medicines, which are tailor made to meet the requirements of patients as well as drugs that have a product license in the UK but not in Ireland.

The company will produce medicines for a specific patient that may not be usually available from a typical supply chain.

It is a joint-venture between Lismore-based pharmacist Akram Hanna and the UK's largest suppliers of specially-made medicines, Quantum Specials.
