Cork, Ireland is home to Alcon’s European manufacturing center for AcrySof® intraocular lenses.

 

History

The Cork facility was established in 1991 and acquired by Alcon in 2000 with the acquisition of Summit Autonomous Inc., a manufacturer of laser systems for corrective eye care. In 2006, the Cork plant began manufacturing Alcon’s AcrySof® intraocular lenses (IOLs), which replace the eye’s natural lens in cataract surgery. 

 

Resulting primarily from aging, a cataract occurs when the eye’s lens becomes cloudy over time, which impairs vision. Cataracts cannot be prevented and are the leading cause of treatable blindness worldwide. Cataract surgery is the most frequently performed surgery in the world today with surgeons around the world performing more than 10 million cataract surgeries annually. Alcon’s AcrySof® IOLs are the most frequently implanted lenses worldwide, with more than 90 million implants since their introduction in the mid-1990s.

 

About the Cork Plant

Alcon’s Cork facility is 13,657 square meters in size and employs over 450 associates. In an environment where quality and precision are critical, Alcon employs professionals with the skills and passion to meet the expectations of our customers, as well as the regulatory bodies that govern the development and manufacturing of our eye care products.

 

Patients are at the center of everything we do and at the heart of our commitment to quality. The Alcon facility in Cork is certified to ISO 13485, is MDD compliant and is an FDA approved manufacturing site.

The Best Bits

The work is interesting and my collegues are excellent to work with.

Things to improve

The work life balance is poor, for a company that is situated in the city where travel time is a huge issue there is no flex time for office staff or work from home option.
