The Johnson and Johnson Family of Companies has been operating in Ireland for over 80 years, and together they directly employ 3,725 people across three business sectors: medical device, pharmaceutical and consumer.
Johnson and Johnson operates across 9 commercial and manufacturing sites in Dublin, Limerick and Cork. In 2016, Johnson & Johnson invested €161m across all of its sites. In October 2017 Janssen Sciences Ireland, the pharmaceutical company of J&J, announced a considerable investment in its Cork biologics manufacturing facility. The €300m expansion of the existing facility will see 450 construction jobs created along with 200 permanent jobs.
In keeping with the Johnson and Johnson credo and ensuring that the J&J Family of companies have a direct impact on the communities in which its employees live and work, more than €750,000 euros was spent on philanthropic contributions in 2016 through donations to local charities, employee volunteerism, and other community initiatives, touching the lives of people throughout Ireland.
J&J are deeply committed to building a diverse community by mobilising brilliant minds that ignite great ideas. As part of this commitment, J&J currently partners with 10 Universities around the world to encourage and support female undergraduates enrolling in STEM-related disciplines. In September 2017 J&J and University of Limerick (UL) entered the second year of their collaborative education WiSTEM2D programme. The program is part of a broader effort to accelerate the development of women leaders and support women at all stages of their lives and to improve global health.
