Governor Announces Talecris' Clayton Expansion

Governor Beverly Perdue announced this morning that Talecris Biotherapeutics will add 259 jobs as part of a $269 million expansion in Clayton. The announcement was made at the Clayton Center. The expansion will occur over the next several years.

The company, based in Research Triangle Park, will get nearly $5 million in state incentives. The incentive package comes with a requirement that the company keep its nearly 2,300 jobs in the area.

North Carolina Commerce Department officials say Talecris' new jobs in Clayton will pay average annual salaries of $51,000.

The company says it wants to meet increasing demand for its drugs made from blood plasma.
