Clayton, North Carolina, will be home to a new state-of-the-art fractionation facility, according to an official statement from medical manufacturer Grifols. Fractionation is the first step to producing plasma-based medical treatments and includes separating the different proteins in plasma. The company is investing more than $370 million to build the new 155,000-square-foot facility.
Grifol's new building will be the world's largest and most technologically advanced fractionation facility, according to the official statement. The space will increase the company's production capacity by nearly 3 million liters by 2015. It was also named the 2014 Facility of the Year for Project Execution by the International Society for Pharmaceutical Engineering, the company stated.
The business expects the facility to be fully operational by 2015 and will employ more than 200 workers. Grifols is currently the largest private employer in Johnston County, North Carolina, with 1,650 workers. It has 2,300 employees throughout North Carolina and more than 9,600 workers in the U.S.
