Soft drink maker Keurig Dr Pepper is to open a manufacturing plant in Newbridge, Co Kildare.
The move will create 50 jobs at the former Lidl distribution centre in the town.
The positions will be in facility operations and research and development.
The 330,000 square foot site will be operational by the end of 2020.
The company, which trades on the New York Stock Exchange, has annual revenue in excess of US$11bn (€9.81bn).
It was formed in 2018 with the merger of Keurig Green Mountain and the Dr Pepper Snapple Group.
It produces soft drinks, coffee, tea, water, juices and mixers.
Its brands include Dr Pepper, Canada Dry and Snapple.
It has over 25,000 employees and more than 120 offices, manufacturing plants, warehouses and distribution centres across North America.
The Newbridge facility will be a second manufacturing source for its beverage concentrate business.
Beverage concentrate is highly concentrated flavours, which is used to make finished beverages or syrup for fountain drinks.
A facility in St Louis, Missouri is currently the company's single manufacturing source of beverage concentrate.
The CEO of IDA Ireland, Martin Shanahan, has welcomed the news.
He said: "The decision by Keurig Dr Pepper to establish a manufacturing facility in Newbridge, Co Kildare is very welcome.
"It endorses Ireland's reputation as a global location for manufacturing and supply chain excellence.
"I would like to offer IDA Ireland's continued support as Keurig Dr Pepper works toward future milestones".
Plant manager Randy Howorka added: "This is an exciting time for Keurig Dr Pepper as we expand our best-in-class manufacturing network with a new beverage concentrate facility in Co Kildare, Ireland.
"We are pleased to be opening our Irish operations in such a desirable location, and we look forward to becoming an active and engaged member of this community."
