Alliance Councillor and Assembly candidate for Upper Bann, Eóin Tennyson, was welcomed the creation of more than 1,000 new job by pharmaceutical company Almac, which is headquartered in Craigavon.
Councillor Tennyson said: “It’s absolutely fantastic news that Almac is to create over 1,000 highly-skilled jobs in the next few years.
“The investment in Craigavon is a huge boost to the area, is a sign of confidence in the wider Northern Ireland economy, and will no doubt make a contribution to health outcomes globally.
“It’s also worth stressing that Northern Ireland now has a relative competitive advantage via dual market access provided for under the Protocol. This is particularly visible in highly regulated areas such as pharma.
“I wish the team at Almac every success with their expansion.”
