Shire plc (LSE: SHP, NASDAQ: SHPG), the global leader in serving patients with rare diseases, announces the opening of its new office in Ireland at the Miesian Plaza on Dublin’s Baggot Street.  An Taoiseach, Enda Kenny TD and Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, Mary Mitchell O’Connor TD, will join Shire leaders to formally open and dedicate the company’s new offices at an event held today.

Shire’s HQ office will move from its current location in Citywest, including the local commercial and technical operations (supply chain and IT) employees based there, who will move into Baggot Street in the coming months. 

Shire has leased 76,000 sq. ft. of the Miesian Plaza.  The company has located one of its global corporate services teams in the building who provide support services across Shire’s global operations in the areas of procurement and finance.  They are in the process of hiring 150 new employees to join this team.    

By the end of June 2017, approximately 300 Shire employees will be based at the Miesian Plaza. The leased space also provides additional accommodation as Shire’s requirements increase over time.
