Abzena picks North Car­oli­na as the home for its 6th man­u­fac­tur­ing site, plans to add 325 jobs in San­ford

While Boston and San Fran­cis­co are the un­ques­tioned lead­ing biotech hubs in the US, drug­mak­ers — par­tic­u­lar­ly con­tract man­u­fac­tur­ers — are look­ing else­where for cheap­er re­al es­tate and un­tapped po­ten­tial. Now, a San Diego-based bi­o­log­ics mak­er look­ing to rapid­ly scale up is set­ting down roots in North Car­oli­na.

CD­MO Abzena will add 325 jobs in San­ford, NC, as part of a $200 mil­lion bi­o­log­ics plant that will even­tu­al­ly house around 24,000 square feet of biore­ac­tor ca­pac­i­ty, the com­pa­ny said.
