The company makes flexible and rigid plastic packaging for food, consumer products and pharmaceutical companies around the world, including a healthcare packaging manufacturing facility in Londonderry.
Invest NI said Bemis has been offered £695,000 of government funding to help with recruitment and a pre-employment training programme.
Marty Scaminaci, global shared services executive at Bemis, said the availability of skilled graduates in the area, engagement of local council representatives, and the support offered from Invest NI were all critical factors in the investment decision.
“Establishing our European Business Services Centre is a strategic investment to help drive efficiencies and standardise our processes. We have successfully operated a manufacturing facility in Northern Ireland since 1996, and know it to be a great location to do business.”
Alastair Hamilton, Invest NI chief executive, added: “Bemis Company makes a valuable contribution to Northern Ireland’s vibrant Life Sciences industry, employing over 200 staff at its manufacturing facility. This investment to establish its European Business Services Centre here is a significant coup.”
