Boston Scientific Corp. announced plans for a $128 million research & development lab in Galway, Ireland.
The Natick device maker, which already employs about 5,000 in Ireland, said the project will create roughly 45 jobs over five years, the Independent reported. The lab will focus on early-stage development projects.
It’s the latest Emerald Isle investment for Boston Scientific. The company bought biodegradable coatings developer Labcoat in January and employs roughly 3,000 workers in nearby Ballybrit, Ireland.
