Following his visit last Thursday (October 28), Mr Browne said: “It was great to explore the IC and get an inside look into a company which has such a strong local presence as well as a global one.

“Everyone that I had the pleasure of speaking to had such a strong passion for the company’s work and it was wonderful to be a first-hand witness to their commitment to improving human life.”
