The company could qualify for state and local incentives worth $2.3 million if its meets hiring and investment goals.

BD, which is based in Franklin Lakes, N.J., will be the first corporate tenant in the Four Oaks Business Park, which is being developed by The Keith Corp. BD already employs about 900 people in North Carolina at facilities in Research Triangle Park, Durham, Burlington, Mebane and Wilson.
