Gerresheimer produces medical devices such as inhalers, pre-fillable syringes and insulin pens.

Gerresheimer Peachtree City, LP, is expanding its production and development practices at its Fayette County location. The German based company will be creating an additional 120 jobs and investing double-digit millions into the expansion, Governor Deal announced.

“Georgia’s healthcare industry is uniquely poised to help Gerresheimer grow,” said Deal. “This leading global company is taking advantage of an eager, skilled workforce and an advanced life science and healthcare ecosystem. Our state is the ideal location to support Gerresheimer’s newest expansion.”

The company will begin the expansion to their facility this year with a projected completion date in 2015. An additional 60,000 square foot manufacturing facility will be built on their 35-acre campus.
