Fresenius Kabi, a global health care company based in Germany that specializes in medicines and technologies for infusion, transfusion and clinical nutrition, expanded its manufacturing operations in Wilson County. The company invested over $100 million and brought 445 new jobs to the Triangle Region.
“Our strategy is to produce in the U.S. and to invest in products and operations that meet important customer needs while helping make health care more accessible for patients. We’re pleased to continue this approach at our site in North Carolina,” said Steven R. Nowicki, senior vice president, global operations for Fresenius Kabi North America.
“Manufacturing represents 22 percent of our state’s economic output and we’re one of the country’s largest centers for biotechnology,” said North Carolina Commerce Secretary Anthony M. Copeland. “We congratulate Fresenius Kabi for this decision, which helps North Carolina maintain its leadership in manufacturing and the life sciences.”
