- The state of Georgia is launching a new Bioscience Training Center across the street from Baxalta's $1 billion biomanufacturing plant in Covington, GA.
- At first, the center will be dedicated to Baxalta's needs, but there is space to grow to accomodate the needs of other life science companies.
- The center is the result of a plan involving Baxter International (which recently spun off Baxalta) and the Georgia Department of Economic Development.
The opening of the Biotech Training Center definitely gives Georgia a distinct competitive advantage versus other states. Baxalta' facility is a biomanufacturing plant focused on plasma fractionation, which provides support for its hemophilia franchise.
Now, workers can receive customized training as part of their professional development for a life science career at Baxalta. It's a win-win all around.
