WHAT GEORGIA OFFERS BAXALTA
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.
