Speaking at today's announcement in Tralee, Central Pharma's CEO Alwyn Smit said: "Post Brexit, Ireland offers a stable environment from which to service our European customer base. We are very excited to establish a best in class operation here as a part of IT Tralee. Thanks to the investment that has been made in IT Tralee, there exists great resource potential here for us to tap into. The fact that the site is adjacent to a University that has a STEM faculty played a major role in our decision to come here as did the availability of the property itself. IDA's Advance Technology Building is an excellent turnkey property solution which is ideal for us."
