Workforce lead Baxalta to pick Georgia for new facility

“We look forward to doing business in an area distinguished by its talent pool and outstanding infrastructure. Georgia’s commitment to workforce success contributed to the unique appeal to this site for Baxalta.”

- Bob Parkinson, CEO, Baxalta


  • Skilled talent pool and workforce training programs
  • Easy access to highways and Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport
  • Generous incentives


The Covington location provides close proximity to plasma collection centers, local resources including the availability of water, utilities, and easy access to Interstate 20 and Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. Key to Baxalta’s decision to choose Georgia was the state’s leading workforce development program, Quick Start, which will build and operate a state-of-the-art biotech training center to meet Baxalta’s and other bioscience companies’ start-up needs.
