Eli Lilly and Company to build a manufacturing unit in North Carolina

Global pharmaceutical firm, Eli Lilly and Company has recently revealed plans to create over 460 new jobs by investing nearly $470 million in Durham, North Carolina. Reportedly, the project would introduce a brand new state-of-the-art pharmaceutical manufacturing unit to the Research Triangle Park.

According to reliable sources, the unit would be one of the most advanced facilities that would manufacture delivery devices and parenteral (or injectable) products. Moreover, to operate this facility, Eli Lilly would generate over 400 jobs in highly skilled areas like engineers, scientists, manufacturing operations and quality professionals.

Evidently, the company owns seven manufacturing units in the U.S. that are located in New Jersey, Puerto Rico, and Indiana.

Roy Cooper, Governor, North Carolina, said that life science firms prefer to set up their businesses in North Carolina due to its exceptional quality of workforce. The region has previously drawn various global organizations and expects to maintain this upward trend in the future as it becomes a global hub for the biotechnology sector.

For the uninitiated, Lilly has had an excellent track record in discovering and developing medicines. Founded in 1876, Lilly is at the forefront of discovering a reliable solution for most debilitating and chronic health issues like cancer, diabetes, chronic pain, Alzheimer’s and autoimmune conditions.  

Recently, Eli Lilly had also made headlines when it signed a definitive agreement to acquire Dermira, Inc. for approximately $1.1 billion, valuing each share at $18.75. Dermira possesses expertise in developing innovative treatments for chronic skin disorders.

Sources close to the move state that the purchase would allow Lilly to expand its immunology pipeline by adding lebrikizumab, a novel, monoclonal, investigational antibody that treats moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis in adults and adolescent patients that are above 12 years of age.
