Published: May 18, 2012
Allergan, which makes Botox, will build a nearly $12 million research and development facility in Bridgewater, the company and the site's owner, SJP Properties, announced yesterday. Based in California, Allergan first said it was considering expanding in New Jersey in November, when it was awarded a $14.9 million grant from the New Jersey Economic Development Authority through the Business Employment Incentive Program. The company has a smaller facility in Bedminster, where it employs 20 people. The new, 93,000-square-foot facility will bring nearly 400 new jobs to the state.
