Almac Athlone Purchase Deeply Worrying - O'Dowd

2 November, 2017 - by John O'Dowd

Sinn Féin MLA John O'Dowd has said news that pharmaceutical giant Almac has purchased a second site in the South is deeply worrying and further evidence of Brexit stripping the local economy of investment and jobs.

The Upper Bann MLA said:

"Almac has proven to be very loyal to Portadown over the years but companies such as Almac operate in a global market. They need unrestricted access to the EU.

"The Tory Brexiteers and their DUP allies are being reckless with local jobs in pursuit of a narrow little Britain agenda.”
