Randox Trade Mission to Massachusetts
A delegation led by the Cathaoirleach of Donegal County Council, Cllr Terence Slowey and the Mayor of Derry City and Strabane District Council, Cllr Hilary McClintock, are in Massachusetts this week as part of a joint endeavour to build relationships and forge partnerships.
Randox joined representatives from a wide range of sectors including education, food and drink distribution and manufacturing to attend meetings with a range of business contacts across the State of Massachusetts and key influencers.
Randox also made a number of key technology and business visits to Harvard and the State House and will participate in the Golden Bridges Conference.
Randox Senior Manager Mark Campbell said;
“The US is one of Randox’s most important markets and we are delighted to participate in this joint trade mission. There is clearly a strong regional and cultural link with Massachussets, and with facilities in Co Antrim and Co Donegal we seek to further develop our business relationship and increase exports. Our innovative diagnostic technologies have much to offer this US high tech hub – and will allow us to create further employment at home.”
In 2015 Randox announced plans to invest €25 million in Randox Teoranta, located in Dungloe in County Donegal. The investment included increasing staff numbers to 540 by 2020, offering world class careers in state-of-the-art R&D and manufacturing facilities. Randox also unveiled the Randox Science Park which will become the prime manufacturing and R&D facility in the UK. This new state of the art facility will generate 540 high value job opportunities over the next four years and will accelerate the development of new products into a wide range of clinical needs. These include various cancers, stroke, heart disease and neurodegenerative disorders, through more efficient, high specification manufacturing and the provision of state-of-the-art R&D laboratories.
Randox founder and CEO Dr Peter FitzGerald said;
“Our vision is to revolutionise healthcare through continuously improving diagnostic solutions. As well as employing locally we want to draw top class talent back to Donegal from the wider Irish diaspora and establish better relationships with the wider Massachusetts area. Randox offers world leading career opportunities to life scientists, electrical and mechanical engineers and software developers, and a chance to join a pioneering team creating diagnostic tests and analyser systems that save lives across the world.”
