Allergan Inc. to Open New R&D Facility in New Jersey, Will Create 400 New Jobs
Published: Nov 08, 2011
The pharmaceutical company behind Botox will give a shot in the arm to the New Jersey economy by building a new $12 million research facility in the state, Gov. Chris Christie announced Monday. The move by California-based Allergan Inc. counters years in which the state has shed well-paying pharmaceutical jobs — a trend Christie has been personally involved in trying to stop. The governor lobbied the firm in person while in California last September to deliver a highly-touted speech at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library.
