Plasma medication manufacturer opening new facility in Clayton

Posted: Updated:
CLAYTON, N.C. -

Grifols, a leading manufacture of plasma-derived medications, is opening a new facility in Clayton.

Grifols is an industry leader in the development and production of biological medicines derived from human plasma to treat rare and chronic conditions, such as neurological disorders, immune deficiencies, hemophilia and genetic emphysema.

It's the largest private employer in Johnston County with 1,650 employees and a total of 2,300 statewide. Two hundred will work in the new facility.

"We just think this great company, and the connection with Research Triangle and Johnston County has an opportunity to grow more jobs in North Carolina," Gov. Pat McCrory said.

The new North Fractionation Facility will almost double the production capacity of plasma and will be fully operational in 2015.
