Where will BD Choose for Its New Facility?


Becton, Dickinson and Company (aka BD) is investing $65 million toward a new location in Right to Work Tucson, Arizona. This will cover the cost of a 120,000-square-foot facility, as well as give them access to Right to Work benefits. In addition, it will also create new jobs for the area. In fact, they plan to create around 40 new jobs. So this is exciting news for the area’s economy!

From Area Development Magazine:

“Tucson is the ideal location for critical infrastructure and was selected after a careful review of a number of alternative locations in the southwestern U.S. and Mexico. […] Arizona’s favorable business climate, the strength of its workforce and Tucson’s centrality to other parts of BD’s supply chain were key factors in the decision.†[…]

“We’re excited to see global innovator BD select Tucson for this new operation. […] Arizona has earned a reputation as a hub for biotech and life sciences, thanks to our unique value proposition and the continued investments from industry leaders like BD. We thank the company for its continued commitment to our state.†[…]

“We were tenacious in our efforts to win this project.†AREA DEVELOPMENT MAGAZINE
