WuXi STA breaks ground on Delaware fa­cil­i­ty, boost­ing its US pres­ence

While Mid­dle­town, Delaware’s main claim to fame was the site lo­ca­tion for the film the Dead Po­ets So­ci­ety, the city will soon play host to a mas­sive man­u­fac­tur­ing out­fit.

WuXi AppTec’s con­tract re­search and man­u­fac­tur­ing sub­sidiary WuXi STA, has bro­ken ground on a 190-acre man­u­fac­tur­ing cam­pus in Mid­dle­town.

Ac­cord­ing to the com­pa­ny, this site will be WuXi’s sec­ond fa­cil­i­ty in the US, and it will cre­ate around 500 full-time jobs by 2026, but there are plans to kick off op­er­a­tions in 2025.
