Grifols to Launch $210 Million Expansion in Clayton

Creating 250 Jobs

For the second time in less than eight months, a global bio-manufacturing company has chosen Johnston County for a significant expansion. Earlier today, the Johnston County Board of Commissioners approved a 10-year incentive package that paves the way for Grifols Therapeutics Inc. to launch a $210 million expansion at its facility near Clayton. The Spain-based leader in plasma-derived medicine, already the county’s largest private employer, will create 250 new jobs here over the coming decade.

"Our county is proud to take its partnership with this leading biotech company to an exciting new level," said Tony Braswell, chairman of Johnston County’s Board of Commissioners, who presided over today’s unanimous vote. As Grifols meets its projections on capital investment and job creation, the county will grant up to $1,277,640 annually to the company for 10 years. “Economic development, when it takes place at this level, is all about partnerships, and it is crucial that the county be a good partner. That means being prepared to share part of the risks as well as the rewards that will grow from this."
