Their commitment to innovation and talent development has garnered the trust of multinational corporations like Dexcom, influencing strategic investment decisions.

Highlighting the groundbreaking ceremony as a crucial milestone, Minister Calleary anticipated the facility’s operational commencement in two years. He emphasized the positive impact of this development not only on the West of Ireland but also on the global community of individuals living with diabetes. The new manufacturing plant is poised to contribute significantly to the production of products benefiting millions worldwide.

As Dexcom ventures into European manufacturing for the first time, the initiative represents a noteworthy achievement for the West of Ireland, positioning the region as an attractive destination for major global investments in the healthcare sector.
