Novo Nordisk To Add Major New Bio-Manufacturing Operations In Clayton
$1.2 billion economic investment will add 691 employees
Johnston County will be the beneficiary of a $1.2 billion economic investment by Novo Nordisk Pharmaceutical Industries, Inc., as the Danish company launches new operations at its Clayton campus to manufacture the active ingredient for its insulin products. Novo Nordisk’s decision, approved earlier today by its board of directors, brings an additional 691 bio-manufacturing jobs to the county.
“This billion-dollar decision by Novo Nordisk more than doubles the size of its North Carolina workforce and underscores the Research Triangle’s global leadership in bio-manufacturing,” said Governor McCrory. “When it comes to life sciences and manufacturing, North Carolina can compete – and win – against any location in the world.”
