DePuy Synthes


DePuy Synthes - Ringaskiddy, Cork.

DePuy Synthes established its manufacturing facility in Cork in 1997 where it manufactures orthopaedic knees and hips. The company has since expanded to include a Global Supply Chain Operation in 2002 and in 2008 DePuy established an Innovation Centre which was created to develop next generation orthopaedic products and processes for a global market. In 2015 the Cork site carried out a €53.2 million expansion to open a new 320,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility (Building 2) similar in size to the existing facility (Building 1). This building primarily provides additional manufacturing capacity but also features a Medical Device Test Methods Center of Excellence laboratory to advance quality testing methods across the J&J family of medical device companies, while also creating potential expansion opportunities for other J&J companies. Building 2 also houses Depuy’s new 3D Printing Innovation Centre. DePuy currently employ over 1000 people in Cork In January 2019. DePuy announced a €36 million investment in ground-breaking research and development projects at the DePuy Synthes Ireland Innovation Centre, Loughbeg, Ringaskiddy, Co. Cork. The five year project will result in significant developments at the company’s Materials and Surface Technology Centre, including co-location with Johnson & Johnson’s 3D Printing Center of Excellence, creating 30 additional high-quality positions. The investment expands the scale and scope of activities taking place at the DePuy Synthes Innovation Centre. Since launching a decade ago, the Centre has accelerated innovative technologies and new product introductions for the company’s orthopaedic portfolio, driven by a diverse technical team. Projects will focus on advancing material science in 3D printing, coatings and surface treatments to meet future needs. The expansion includes the establishment of a 3-D Printing Development and Launch Center on-site, as well as the Johnson & Johnson 3D Bioprinting Laboratory, launched last year in collaboration with Trinity College Dublin.
