DURHAM, NC – rench diagnostics company bioMérieux Inc. is getting an added financial kick from Durham County.
Commissioners unanimously agreed to approve a $400,000 business incentive deal to help finance an already announced expansion.
Last month, the state of North Carolina announced the company would get a $200,000 grant.
Incentives are to help finance a $48 million, 25,500-square-foot addition to the plant – an expansion that, according to President and CEO Marc Mackowiak, would happen either way, though the funds make it “easier.”
The expansion is expected to bring 44 jobs to the facility over the next three years.
