150K-SF Manufacturing Facility Slated to Bring 150 Jobs to Devens, MA

UK-based Watson-Marlow Fluid Technology Group has broken ground on its newly leased 150,000-square-foot manufacturing facility in Devens, MA.

The facility, located on a 24-acre site in Red Tail Heights on Bulge Road, will feature eight cleanrooms, warehousing and offices, plus space for two additional cleanrooms. It is expected to bring more than 150 jobs to the area.
