Johnson & Johnson Vision Care, one of Limerick’s biggest employers is gearing up for a further extension, in a move which could potentially see up to 100 new jobs created.

Local news has reported that high-level sources that Johnson & Johnson Vision Care, which manufactures contact lenses in the Plassey National Technology Park could announce the positions before the year is out, or early next year.

The proposals would bring an extension to the main building comprising the construction of an extended production hall. There would also be a new two-storey block to support the production, and a single storey loading bay.

The staff car park would be extended under the plans to provide for 104 new car parking spaces.

A company source stated: “We’re always looking to secure investment, but you can not have an absolute guarantee of a project being delivered. Often years ahead of time, we put planning permissions in place, so when we go to bid for projects, we know the permissions are ready to go.”

Mayor Collins said from the planning application – which needs to be lodged in the next fortnight – “we can only surmise Johnson and Johnson is looking for permission for a large expansion of its facility, and jobs will be created off the back of it.

Johnson & Johnson, one of Limerick’s biggest employers with close on 1,000 people on its books in the city, will need to provide the council with planning documents in the next fortnight to progress its case
