Mas­sive $1.5B in­vest­ment in man­u­fac­tur­ing widens Eli Lil­ly's foot­print in Ire­land and North Car­oli­na

What do North Car­oli­na and Ire­land have in com­mon? A tra­di­tion of friend­ly peo­ple, a deep ap­pre­ci­a­tion of brew­eries, and now, new Eli Lil­ly man­u­fac­tur­ing sites, set to hire 900 peo­ple.

In­di­anapo­lis-based Eli Lil­ly will pump al­most $1.5 bil­lion in­to the two new man­u­fac­tur­ing fa­cil­i­ties, the com­pa­ny an­nounced on Fri­day. The short-term fo­cus of these plants will be to bol­ster di­a­betes and can­cer prod­ucts, while the sites will take on Alzheimer’s and obe­si­ty med­ica­tions in the long run.
