The project will bring about 50 new high-skilled advanced manufacturing jobs. Additionally, it will create another 300 jobs, providing more employment opportunities.

With the new plant expansion, this project will

  • Building R&D strengths to attract a greater number of Contract Development and Manufacturing (CMO and CDMO) projects
  • Enhance domestic biomanufacturing capabilities, fortifying the ability to meet pharmaceutical supply chain demands
  • Improve manufacturing efficiency, enabling faster responses to product shortages or addressing urgent health challenges
