The new ISO 14644-1 Class 7 cleanroom will be added to the company's existing Cork site and will be certified to meet the demands of the highly regulated pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical manufacturing sector in Ireland.

The expansion of Watson-Marlow's Cork facility will provide global expertise within Ireland, offering a high quality and reliable supply allied with customer service and local support.

Watson-Marlow's Ireland-based customers will be able to locally access essential bioprocess single-use assemblies for biopharmaceutical production.
