Prime Minister of Ireland Leo Varadkar TD announced today that GW Plastics is expanding our advanced manufacturing operations in Ireland! GW Plastics established our first European location with the purchase of Avenue Mould Solutions in 2017, and are growing our operations in response to increased customer demand in our medical device and drug delivery business.
We plan to invest in excess of €6 million to grow our product development, precision tooling, thermoplastic and silicone injection molding, and contract assembly capabilities in Europe. We plan to expand our molding operations into a scalable 28,000 square foot site located in Sligo.
Prime Minister Varadkar and representatives from IDA Ireland attended a celebration at Avenue to announce this exciting news. We look forward to continuing to grow in Ireland!
