Cobh & Harbour Chamber is delighted to bring you “The Pfizer Story” for the September Business Breakfast in association with Port of Cork. This story will give us an insight into Pfizer’s daily operations in Ringaskiddy and the important work they do there, as well as a global viewpoint.

On the day we will hear from Seamus Fives, Vice President of API Operations, and Clair Murphy. Site Leader at Ringaskiddy who will, in turn, take us through the local and global operations of Pfizer, their history in Cork as well as the recent story of the Covid 19 Vaccine, including production, promotion, and rollout.
