Alexion is focused on providing innovative treatments to patients with life-threatening rare diseases and devastating conditions for which there are few, if any, effective treatment options. Patients across Ireland are served by Alexion's United Kingdom and Ireland affiliate.

Since 2013, Alexion’s facility in Blanchardstown, Dublin has served as the Company’s Global Supply Chain and Operations headquarters. The site, which will be home to a large-scale biologics manufacturing facility, is also used to house packaging and testing operations in support of our Global Manufacturing network. Construction of a second biologics manufacturing facility in Athlone, Ireland has also begun, and this will accompany the location’s existing fill-finish facility.

Alexion’s investments in both Athlone and Blanchardstown have created a significant number of local job opportunities, including construction jobs while the sites are being developed as well as full-time Alexion positions. As we continue to drive forward our mission of serving patients with rare diseases, the expansion of our Irish facilities will be at the forefront of this vital work globally.



Working at Alexion is an experience like no other. With a focus on rare diseases, each endeavor is urgent and every day counts. Groundbreaking innovation, life-saving therapies, all driven by a team with a shared sense of purpose and dedication — that’s Alexion.
