The Longford B Braun facility was established in 2008 and produces intravenous nutrition products for use in Irish hospitals and for patients who may be in their own homes.

It says the proposed closure is necessary because the volume of production available to the site is too low to make the plant viable any longer.

It's understood the company has confirmed that no other B Braun sites in Ireland are included in todays announcement.
