Kilkenny pharma company gets green light to double size of facility in city
A Kilkenny-based medical device manufacturer has been given the green light for a major expansion plan which will see its facility more than double in size.
Kilkenny County Council has granted CF Pharma permission to build a more than 1,600 sq meter extension beside its current facility at the Hebron Industrial Estate in Leggetsrath West in Kilkenny city.
The development will consist of a single-storey commercial warehouse facility of more than 1,000sq mts, with adjoined administrative offices over two levels covering more than 500sq mts.
CF Pharma purchased the land for the extension at the Hebron Industrial Estate from Kilkenny County Council.
The company currently employs 50 staff and during the lockdown branched out from its core business of making hospital medical devices, and developed an alcohol-free hand sanitiser, launching the Sanihub360 range.
