22 Sep 2016

BioPharma Engineering (BPE) has announced it will create 70 jobs across its Cork headquarters and new Dublin office, and will be seeking highly skilled graduates to fill the roles.

The jobs announcement at BPE, an Irish-owned engineering design company, comes following the opening of its new offices in Dublin.

Headquartered in Cork, BPE was founded 10 years ago by John O’Reilly and Richard Holohan and currently employs 80 people. It will create 70 highly skilled jobs over the course of the next three years.

With clients including global pharmaceutical and bioscience manufacturing corporations, BPE has doubled its workforce over the last 18 months. It has also invested significantly in software and systems to serve the €100m sector.

Recruitment for the jobs is now underway, and the new positions will contribute to the company’s expansion into the UK and EU markets.

Ireland’s reputation continues to grow

“Our company has delivered capital projects worth more than €500m for our clients and we continue to scale in terms of markets, capabilities and ambition,” said BPE’s director, John O’Reilly.

“The new Dublin offices will enable us to serve our clients better and ensure that we continue to deliver the highest-quality engineering design solutions which clients have come to expect from BPE.”

Meanwhile, Enterprise Ireland’s manager for construction and cleantech, Stephen Hughes added: “The reputation of Ireland as a supplier of high-end engineering services to the world’s pharmaceutical industries has been built over time through high levels of investment, and continues to grow.

“BPE has developed its own reputation through winning many major contracts in Ireland and is now winning business overseas with targeted customers in a number of key markets.”
