About us

We are a science-led global healthcare company that researches and develops a broad range of innovative products in three primary areas of Pharmaceuticals, Vaccines and Consumer Healthcare.

Each of our three businesses benefits from GSK’s commercial infrastructure, integrated supply networks and significant global presence. 

The vaccines, medicines, and consumer healthcare products that we research and develop can improve people’s health and well-being, ultimately helping them to live life to its fullest and contribute to the prosperity of their communities. 

At GSK, we believe how we do business is as important as what we do – it’s what makes us different - so we are challenging industry norms by changing the way we work.

GSK employs 1,800 people across four locations in Ireland – Dungarvan, Cork, Sligo and Dublin. GSK is committed to helping people around the world to do more, feel better and live longer. GSK is challenging the status quo of how a healthcare company can contribute to global health through improving access and innovation through both what and how we operate.

GSK in Dungarvan which produces a variety of ‘over-the-counter’ pharmacy and oral care products is the global home of Panadol:  Around 7.5 billion Panadol tablets are produced in Dungarvan each year – that’s 150 Panadol tablets a second - exporting to over 70 countries worldwide.

Our Cork site produces the active ingredients for a range of medicines for diseases such as childhood cancer, depression, diabetes, HIV, Parkinson’s disease and arthritis while our Sligo facility is dedicated to skincare producing around 30 million skin medicines and products every year including Oilatum and Physiogel exporting to over 65 countries
