The new Johnson & Johnson Portugal headquarters moved to Lagoas Park in an investment worth €5.5 Million.
The new Portugal headquarters were inaugurated on September 10th and will include a new clinical trials unit.
“Johnson & Johnson as a group and the largest health care products company in the world, is clearly increasing its investment and presence in Portugal. We want to continue to grow which is why we need this new premises” states Filipa Mota e Costa, Managing Director of Janssen Portugal, the pharmaceutical company within Johnson & Johnson.
According to her, the old building didn’t have “room to grow”. In fact, this was one of the main reasons for the change: “The company also need to move because the premises needed to be more modern with all the latest technology and offering “a concept of flexibility in the workplace” and better working conditions for staff.”
Johnson & Johnson Portugal employs 400 workers, 90% of which have higher educations.
In Portugal, it has 3 main activity areas: pharmaceutics, consumer products and medical devices.
