PJ Moloney- CEO, EireChrom/EireBio

  • Speaker Bio:

    Since being established in February 2013, EireChrom has gone about growing the business with considerable success.

    Year-on-year increases in both turnover and profit have marked its progress over the past two years.

    Further expansion into the UK and new markets such as the Nordics is on the cards in 2016.

    EireChrom will compete on March 3rd in the SFA Awards for “Outstanding Small Business of the Year” in Ireland.

    Earlier in 2016, where shortlisted for the Cork Emerging Company of the Year and winners of the “Little Island – R&D/Innovation Awards”.

    Another goal the company, led by chief executive, PJ Moloney, is hoping to achieve is to be named among Enterprise Ireland high potential startups (HPSU).

    HPSUs are start-up businesses with the potential to develop an innovative product or service for sale on international markets which could create as many as 10 jobs and deliver €1m in sales within three to four years of starting out.

    Doing so would be the next step along the road for Mahon-based company which in June 2014 was accepted onto the Cork Competitive Feasibility Fund through Enterprise Ireland.

    In August of last year, EireChrom won a share of the IE Domain Registry’s €150,000 Optimise Fund as well receiving €25,000 from the Ryan Entrepreneurship Fund.

    Prior to establishing EireChrom Ltd, PJ was the Irish Chromatography Manager for multinational Agilent Technologies.

    Here he grew the Irish business to be the highest EMEAI growth country in FY’11 & FY’12, with over 40 Analytical methods developed with clients such as BMS; Novartis; MSD; Lilly: Pfizer.

    At Teva Pharmaceuticals, PJ worked as a chemist for a number of years following his studies in Pharmaceutical Sciences.
