Teva Pharmaceuticals USA, an Israel-based pharmaceutical company, will locate its U.S. headquarters in Parsippany-Troy Hills, New Jersey. The facility will support more than 1,000 high-wage jobs, including the transfer and creation of more than 800 positions.
The company, which will expand its existing Parsippany-Troy Hills location to nearly 350,000 square feet, expects to transfer and create 843 jobs and retain 232 existing positions.
According to the Governor’s office, currently headquartered in North Wales, Pennsylvania, Teva Pharmaceuticals sought to consolidate its operations into a more centralized location to drive efficiencies and maximize the advantage of being part of a thriving life sciences cluster.
“While Teva will retain a significant presence in Pennsylvania, reducing the number of sites supports our drive to continue to improve productivity and efficiencies,” said Brendan O’Grady, Executive Vice President and Head of North America Commercial. “We’re pleased to expand our presence in New Jersey, having closer proximity to a vibrant business hub and a dynamic life sciences environment, all while increasing jobs and preserving many existing roles.”
“The presence of global life sciences companies like Teva Pharmaceuticals is critical to New Jersey’s ability to strengthen a thriving innovation ecosystem,” said Governor Phil Murphy. “We are thrilled to expand our welcome to Teva, and its more than 1,000 employees, in the Garden State – the place to be for the world’s most competitive life sciences companies.”
The New Jersey Economic Development Authority (EDA) approved performance-based tax credits through the Grow New Jersey program at its June 2018 board meeting.
“Nurturing the growth of strategic industry clusters is central to Governor Murphy’s mission of reclaiming New Jersey’s leadership in the innovation economy and strengthening the state’s economic competitiveness,” said Tim Sullivan, CEO of the EDA. “Teva’s long-term commitment to New Jersey is the latest evidence of the enduring strength of our life sciences industry and New Jersey’s value proposition to the world’s leading companies.”
