Shire has been present in Ireland since 1994. Our original office was a single room in a Cahil May Roberts building.
Since these humble beginnings we have now transformed as a company and support many more patients with our innovative products in Ireland and across the world.
Our global corporate headquarters is based at the iconic offices in Miesian Plaza, Baggot Street, Dublin City Centre. Formally opened in April 2017, this office is the home to our global corporate services team which includes finance operations, procurement and treasury functions that support the Shire organisation worldwide.
The building also houses our Irish commercial operations as well as some of our Technical Operations team which includes our supply chain, technical and quality teams who support the manufacturing and distribution of our products around the world to our patients.
Shire Pharmaceuticals Ireland was also named a Best Place to Work in Ireland in 2017. This is the second year in a row that we have gained this accolade.
In 2016, we also announced an investment into a new manufacturing plant that is being built in Piercetown, County Meath. When fully operational, the plant will manufacture some of our innovative rare disease products that support patients in Ireland and around the world.
