Ireland is a leading hub for life sciences and manufacturing. Through continuous growth and innovation, it maintains its competitive advantage.
Manufacturing is key to Ireland’s success
“Ireland is an international leader in the life science industry and is one of the top three exporters of pharmaceutical products worldwide. Part of the sector’s success here is reliant on the ability to deliver the most advanced products to the market through efficient manufacturing processes. For our business, having expert technical teams delivering innovation through compliant, high-level performance, tailored solutions, and process improvements ensures our clients continued success and competitiveness in the market” says Emer Conroy, Director of LotusWorks.
Maintaining competitive advantage
For life science manufacturers, remaining competitive while adapting to the latest developments and challenges in today’s marketplace is an essential consideration. The ability to act quickly and increase production in facilities within a short space of time, can not only contribute to market growth but it can also save the lives of millions worldwide. LotusWorks has been steadily enhancing it’s scalability to deliver and to work across global operations to help resolve complex challenges faced by companies in the sector.
“It’s always been important to have the ability to work across operations and deliver process improvements in partnership with clients but this was critical during the COVID-19 pandemic. Our company’s ability to be agile and responsive enabled our client’s speedy response to the ever-evolving challenge the pandemic posed” says Conroy.

Fostering knowledge-sharing and a culture of continuous improvement is the driving force behind success in the life science sector says Conroy: “We continuously focus on improvement. In the last 18 months, working in partnership with life science manufacturers, we have completed 21 process improvements and contributed cost savings of over €5 million to our clients. These improvements relate to areas such as safety, manufacturing efficiency, calibration optimisation and data management. We understand how important competitiveness is to our life science clients, but we never compromise on quality.”
