Swiss-based dermatology company Galderma will be expanding its current North American headquarters in Fort Worth, Texas. The expansion will support research, development and training.
The company’s expansion will include the addition of a 100,000 square foot facility, a $22 million capital investment and the creation of 342 new jobs. Galderma currently has 300 employees at its 170,000 square foot North American headquarters in Fort Wort.
“Galderma is a leader in research and development of scientifically-defined and medically-proven solutions for the skin, hair and nails,” said Galderma North America President Miles Harrison.
“Galderma only focuses on dermatology; we care about our patient’s skin and their skin health. We continuously invest in R&D to bring new drugs to market that really make a difference in our consumers and patients’ lives," he added. "We are thrilled to expand our Fort Worth footprint and to see our expansion supported by a $2.052 million grant from the Texas Enterprise Fund.”
“The Lone Star State’s promise of a low-tax, low-regulation environment has attracted companies from around the globe,” said Governor Greg Abbott. “Galderma’s expansion shows the company’s commitment to serving the Fort Worth community and its workforce needs. We are proud that Galderma has decided to continue investing in Texas and create hundreds of new jobs to support their North American operations.”
