BioMarin Manufacturing Ireland is to create 50 new jobs at its Dublin Global Commercial Operation Hub. The company will be recruiting staff for senior accounting, finance, customer service and marketing positions.

The company is a subsidiary of BioMarin Pharmaceuticals.

The Dublin operation has responsibility for international supply chain, logistics and high level commercial decision-making, including price, distribution and third-party contracts for the launch of VIMIZIM.

The expansion complements the growth in BioMarin’s biopharma manufacturing facility in Shanbally, Co Cork, which is expected to grow to 140 employees by 2015 to support the anticipated commercial demand of VIMIZIM.
