About Abbott

Abbott is a global healthcare leader that helps people live more fully at all stages of life. Our portfolio of life-changing technologies spans the spectrum of healthcare, with leading businesses and products in diagnostics, medical devices, nutritionals and branded generic medicines.

Abbott in Ireland
Today, Abbott employs over 5,500 people in Ireland and with 10 sites, based in all four provinces. It is one of the largest multinational companies in the country and produces a range of lifesaving and life-enhancing products across diabetes care, cardiovascular, diagnostics and nutrition.

Our activities in Ireland also include commercial operations and shared services which provide regional and global support to all Abbott’s businesses worldwide.

Our healthcare products manufactured in Ireland are now exported to more than 130 countries around the world.

In 2022 we announced a major expansion of our Irish manufacturing operations, specifically to meet the demand for the FreeStyle Libre technology. This has included investing €440 million and creating approximately 1,000 new jobs in Donegal and in a brand-new site in Kilkenny.

Construction is now well underway on that new site, a 30,000 sqm state-of-the-art facility. This will become our 10th location nationally and when manufacturing completes later this year, the site will employ around 800 people.

Across Ireland, Abbott colleagues are creating the future of healthcare through life-changing technologies and products that drive breakthroughs in prevention, diagnosis, and treatment.

Abbott continues to push the boundaries of healthcare innovation and we remain dedicated to creating a healthier future for all. Our strong presence in Ireland will continue to make us a stronger company and support our goal of helping people live fuller lives.
