Emergent BioSolutions has opened a new 56,000-square-foot facility in Baltimore, Maryland. The site includes several manufacturing suites, and could create up to 120 jobs over the next five years.
"The Baltimore facility symbolizes Emergent's continued investment in manufacturing as one of its core competencies and competitive advantages," said Fuad El-Hibri, Emergent's chairman and CEO. "It is also a testament to Emergent's commitment to the State of Maryland, where we are proud to be a key contributor to economic development and job growth."
The company is now modifying and re-commissioning the facility. Emergent has 180 employees in Maryland.
