Medical Firm Baxter Brings Jobs To Metro Atlanta

ATLANTA (AP/WAOK) – Gov. Nathan Deal says pharmaceuticals and biotechnology company Baxter International Inc. has broken ground on a manufacturing plant in Georgia that’s expected to create hundreds of jobs.

Deal gathered with company executives on Wednesday to break ground for the plant in the Covington area.

Baxter executives have said the plant and related expansions represent a $1 billion investment expected to create more than 1,500 jobs over the next five years.

The Georgia operation will include warehouse and distribution facilities. It will involve the manufacturing of plasma-based therapies that treat chronic and life-threatening illnesses.
