Since breaking ground on our 259-acre facility in 2004, we have invested some $1.6 billion in the campus. The site is named for the late Maurice R. Hilleman, Ph.D., a noted microbiologist and vaccine researcher at our company.
In 2019, we announced additional investments to support the manufacturing of existing and new products. This will include a new 225,000 square-foot addition. These projects directly impact our shared vision and mission to help save and improve lives.
