FUJIFILM Biotech Group To Expand College Station Campus
FUJIFILM Diosynth Biotechnologies is expanding its current facility in College Station, Texas by adding an additional 138,000 square feet to its current campus, and plans to spend $300 million on the new facility coming to the Brazos Valley in 2024. The expanded facility will require another 150 employees. A Texas Enterprise Fund grant of $1.5 million dollars was extended to FUJIFILM Diosynth Biotechnologies in December 2021. The new facility is near the Texas A&M college campus.
The expansion project offers advanced therapy and vaccine manufacturing capacity. “The contract development and manufacturing company in the U.S. and worldwide is supporting nearly 400 cell and gene therapies in development or already deployed, most designed to target a broad range of rare diseases,” FUJIFILM’s Gerry Farrell said. “So, with our customers, we can manufacture bioreactors that we can give to patients to turn that gene on and off or cut it out.”
