Up to 100 new jobs are to be created in the northern suburbs of Cork City over the next three years.
doTERRA, which makes essential oils and wellness products, is to open the company’s first manufacturing facility outside of the United States in Blarney.
The Irish operation, which will serve as doTERRA’s European Manufacturing Headquarters, will manufacture and distribute doTERRA products to the European marketplace, as well as provide increased capacity to serve other international markets, including the Middle East and Africa.
The 95,000 sq. ft. state-of-the-art facility in Blarney consists of cleanrooms, bottling rooms, office space, a lab, cold storage and warehousing and is expected to be completed by the end of July. There are currently 10 employees based in Cork City, and the company will look to add a number of operations roles and warehouse staff in August as the facility ramps up to start production in September.
The privately held company was founded in 2008 and employs over 3,500 people in the U.S. and multiple offices around the world.
“doTERRA Europe is thriving and enjoying record growth,” said David Stirling, doTERRA Founding Executive and CEO. “doTERRA sources so many of its essential oils from Europe, and we are thrilled that this facility allows us to greatly reduce our carbon footprint by ensuring that these oils intended for European customers never leave Europe.”
Martin Shanahan, CEO of IDA Ireland said the company's decision shows 'Cork continues to be a world-class investment location for international companies'.
"doTERRA’s arrival in Cork shows the confidence business leaders have in a region that continues to assert its adaptability and agility despite some extraordinary challenges that have emerged as a result of the global pandemic," he said.
