Description:

Originally known as Organon, MSD bought this tableting facility in the late 2000’s. The facility is located on the Feltrim Road in Swords Co. Dublin. Walls Construction were retained by Organon initially to do a refurbishment of the existing facility and from this an 11 year relationship developed in which Walls Construction helped transform it into a world class manufacturing facility involving a number of phases of development.

The projects works included the developments of the original facility, the warehouse, extension works and a staff canteen. The Manufacturing Handling Facility (MHF) has an area of 17,700m². This included the development of a large high bay warehouse with a low humidity store, manufacturing packaging areas, clean rooms, extensive plant areas, QC sampling areas, as well as laboratories and administrative space.
