Edwards Lifesciences has announced it has begun renovations to convert its existing Shannon facility into a manufacturing centre for lifesaving transcatheter heart valves.

Components that are an integral part of Edwards’ life-saving transcatheter heart valves will now be produced at the Shannon facility.

“The expanded capability at our Shannon facility demonstrates that our operations in Ireland are a key enabler for Edwards to continue helping patients across the globe,” Andrew Walls, Edwards’ general manager for its manufacturing facilities in Ireland explained.

Edwards established its operations in Shannon in 2018, and officially opened its plant in Limerick in October. At that time, Edwards announced that it will employ up to 850 people in the region by 2025. The Limerick plant manufactures transcatheter therapies to repair or replace damaged heart valves, enabling patients to live longer, healthier lives.
