Biomanufacturing and Healthcare

The world's healthcare technologies are investing in the next generation of treatments. We are, too. 

East of Atlanta on I-20, Quick Start has built a new biosicence training center that draws on the steady stream of remarkable talent available from Atlanta to the west, Athens (home of the University of Georgia) to the northeast and the Medical College of Georgia to the east in Augusta. 

The new Georgia Bioscience Training Center will serve Shire, which is building a 50,000 square foot, $1 billion state-of-the-art plant to make plasma-related products when it opens in 2018. 

The training center includes classrooms, laboratories where training will enable employees to enter the workforce right away.

The Georgia Bioscience Training Center

With Shire's 2016 acquisition of Baxalta, the London-based health care giant now has a formidable presence in Georgia: a 100 acre plant under construction off I-20 in Newton County.

The new Georgia Bioscience Training Center will serve Shire, which is building a 50,000 square foot, $1 billion state-of-the-art plant to scheduled to open in 2018. 

 

Shire will produce products used to treat blood disorders and plasma for critical care, trauma and burn patients. 

 

That will require Shire to hire 1,500 employees, all of whom must be trained in specific technical, scientific and manufacturing skills — no easy task. 

But we're up to the job.
