North Carolina is the #3 state in the U.S. in biotech firms and employees, and fast becoming a global biotech hub. Clearly, there’s no better place to build a biotech success story than the Tar Heel State. And, with the Blue Ridge Mountains as a backdrop, there’s no prettier place to do it than Caldwell County:
“I’ve managed facilities around the world and I’d put the workforce of Caldwell County among the top. They’re hard working, committed and exhibit a high level of trust and pride. There’s an adequate supply of skilled workers and labor rates are extremely competitive. Local officials have been unbelievably supportive and responsive, and the overall community is steeped in the southern hospitality that makes doing business that much easier.”
Pete Molinaro CEO Adhezion Biomedical
“Greer Laboratories has called Caldwell County home for over 77 years. What started as a collector of botanicals and has evolved into the largest allergy immunotherapy company in the U.S. Our plan for future growth is simple: continue to invest in Lenoir and Caldwell County. The work force, educational access, operating environment, government support, and quality of life make this strategy a no-brainer.”
