RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK – Japan-based Fujifilm could announce the Research Triangle as the site for a massive, new $2 billion biotech manufacturing site as early as Thursday morning.
Fujuifilm already has a significant presence in Morrisville through its subsidiary Fujifilm Diosynth Biotechnologies.
However, no immediate plans are in place for an announcement of the location, a Fujifilm spokesperson told Sarah Krueger of WRAL TV. The site may not be announced until May or June, Krueger was told.
North Carolina’s Economic Development Committee, which considers tax incentives for corporate expansions and facilities, has a meeting in Raleigh at 11 a.m. So far the N.C. Department of Commerce has only said that projects will be reviewed by the committee.
David Rhoades, a spokesperson for the NC Department of Commerce, said he could not “share information” about whether the state was talking with Fujifilm.
