Limerick facility growth at Johnson & Johnson Vision Care Ireland

The company’s goal of helping more people across the world experience good sight for life will be supported by the €100 million investment, which has the potential to provide 80 new employment.

One of the world’s largest contact lens manufacturing plants is located at the Johnson & Johnson Vision facility in Limerick. Using the addition of flexible, fully automated manufacturing lines made with leading-edge technology, the facility’s manufacturing capacity will be increased. This will facilitate the continued expansion of Johnson & Johnson Vision Care’s ACUVUE Astigmatism product family and provide the company’s pipeline for upcoming new product introductions. Production should begin in 2024, and construction is already underway.

“The continuous commitment exhibited by Johnson & Johnson Vision to conduct business here is extremely welcome,” said Taoiseach Micheál Martin TD. The work done in Limerick center has a significant impact on people’s lives throughout the world, therefore I am thrilled that this location is thriving.

With the manufacturing of the company’s fastest-growing daily disposable lenses for international markets, the Johnson & Johnson Vision facility in Limerick is essential to the company’s contact lens business.

“At least 2.2 billion individuals worldwide have a vision impairment,” said Chris Ewer, vice president and E2E supply chain leader for Johnson & Johnson Vision Care. We anticipate assisting more patients and eye care professionals with the items they require where they need them thanks to the expansion of our manufacturing activities in Limerick and our solid global supply chain network. It is impressive that we have worked in Ireland for 25 years, and the growth of our website demonstrates our dedication to assisting more people worldwide.
