Weekender 8/12/16

In this week’s edition of the BioLines Weekender we introduce a new section entitled “Economic Developments.” In addition to highlighting the numerous companies moving to the Garden State, we will be spotlighting those expanding their footprint, such as BioNJ Member Allergan.

This week, Allergan announced that its new U.S. Administrative Headquarters, expected to be completed in 2017 in Madison, N.J., will house the company’s New Jersey-based corporate, commercial, research & development and other shared services functions bringing together more than 1,000 employees with an expected additional 300 new hires.

Meanwhile, New Jersey was ranked #1 in Drug/Pharma Leaders and #2 in Biotech Leadership in the 2016 Business Facilities Rankings just released.
