“We are fortunate to work in an environment where we have the opportunity to serve patients right around the world and to contribute to the Irish economy through direct and indirect employment as well as in export revenues. We appreciate this award – particularly following so soon after our being named as Biotech Company of the Year and overall Pharma Industry Company of the Year at the Pharma Industry Awards in October.”
