Thriving Industry

Whether it's physical infrastructure, human resources or support companies, North Carolina provides what a biomanufacturing facility needs.

More than 50 companies manufacturing biologics, pharmaceuticals and diagnostics already call North Carolina home. These companies — Biogen Idec, GlaxoSmithKline, Medicago, Novartis, Novozymes, Pfizer, Grifols, Inc. — operate some of the largest or most unique facilities of their kind.

Trained Workforce

NCBioImpact is a public-private partnership involving North Carolina's community colleges, universities and industry to produce and deliver workforce training programs across the state.
