rtCGM systems provider DexCom has commenced construction on its first manufacturing facility in Europe, located in Athenry, County Galway, Ireland.
Expected to generate more than 1,000 jobs, including across human resources (HR), finance and engineering disciplines, the facility will be pivotal in maintaining the supply of rtCGM products across EMEA.
The facility aims to reduce costs and enhance sustainability by cutting delivery times.
It is designed to produce millions of Dexcom rtCGM sensors annually for people living with diabetes.
Dexcom EMEA and LATAM [Latin America] general manager and senior vice-president Alex Moussa said: “This facility is strategically located in Europe, for Europe.
“This development demonstrates our commitment to sustainable growth and operational excellence in EMEA, as well as to the people we serve. This is only the beginning; we’re truly excited for what’s to come.”
