Perrigo acquisition of Irish company now complete

ALLEGAN, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Irish bio-tech company Elan is now officially a part of Allegan-based company Perrigo.

As part of the $8.6 billion deal, Perrigo will move its top office to Dublin, Ireland.

Perrigo says the move will help the company expand internationally, but it appears the biggest incentive is a lower corporate tax rate--about two-thirds less than in the U.S.

Perrigo says despite moving its headquarters, there will be no changes to operations or personnel here in West Michigan.
