Johnson & Johnson have announced that its pharmaceutical business segment will adopt the Johnson & Johnson brand name in Ireland. 

Janssen, its pharmaceutical segment, will become Johnson & Johnson Innovative Medicine, and the medical technology segment will continue to be named Johnson & Johnson MedTech. 

New era

The announcement marks the next era for Johnson & Johnson in Ireland, which is leveraging its expertise in innovative medicine and medical technology to prevent and treat complex diseases and introduce solutions that are smarter, less invasive, and more personalised.

 Johnson & Johnson has a long heritage in Ireland since 1935, and a large footprint with a workforce of more than 6,000 people[i].  

Its Irish operations which comprise both the Innovative Medicine and MedTech segments, make a significant contribution to the company’s global success with ten sites located in five counties (Cork, Dublin, Limerick, Galway and Mayo) spanning research and development, manufacturing, shared services and country commercial businesses. 

These changes are part of a global rollout of the new Johnson & Johnson brand that was announced in September 2023.  

Updated brand 

The updated brand will be applied to all company materials, product packaging, and branding assets over time.

The new Johnson & Johnson brand identity builds on the Company’s legacy, while also modernising key elements to showcase healthcare innovation in a way that is inclusive and demonstrates the Company’s ability to tackle the world’s toughest health challenges.

“We innovate with purpose to lead where medicine is going,” said Mr. Dana Daneshvari, vice president manufacturing, Large Molecule Manufacturing, Johnson & Johnson Innovative Medicine, Ringaskiddy. 

“As we look to the future, we will continue to build on our legacy of innovation, delivering transformational medicines that improve patient outcomes and make a lasting impact on healthcare in Ireland.”

There will be no change to the company names and/or legal status of the Johnson & Johnson Innovative Medicine or MedTech companies in Ireland. 

The Johnson & Johnson Innovative Medicine companies are Janssen Sciences Ireland UC and Janssen Pharmaceutical Sciences UC.
