Today, Simon Hart MP, Secretary of State for Wales and I visited Ipsen on the Wrexham Industrial Estate to welcome their most recent investment into the site.
Ipsen’s Wrexham facility is a ‘Neuroscience Centre of Excellence’, undertaking research and development (R&D), whilst also manufacturing medicines to treat neurological conditions. Ipsen recently made an investment of £24 million into their Wrexham site to build a new flexible drug product manufacturing facility. The Secretary for Wales and myself were invited to take a tour of the in-development facility and to learn more about Wrexham’s potential as a hub for UK life sciences and innovation.
Having long been a supporter of Ipsen and their brilliant and innovative work, I was thrilled to visit again to hear about the work of their ‘Neuroscience Centre of Excellence’. This new facility will be a huge boost for local jobs and the regional economy and I am so pleased that Ipsen have chosen, once again, to invest in our town. Wrexham is home to many exciting and thriving businesses, Ipsen being one of them, and this is another vote of confidence in all that we have to offer as a place to do business.
The Ipsen site in Wrexham currently houses around 400 Ipsen colleagues, including a unique team of scientists focused on developing a range of scientifically-advanced, high-quality processes and methodologies required for the manufacture and supply of clinical products across the Ipsen Biologics portfolio. Ipsen Wrexham is a global site, producing products that are exported to over 90 countries around the world.
