We hope you had a fantastic Thanksgiving! November reminds us to be thankful for so much. We are grateful to live in a state that invests in education – the root of economic development. Governor Murphy signed legislation to expand access to STEM education this month, helping to ensure that New Jersey remains a top state for education in the United States.
We are also pleased to announce that India-based Meteoric Biopharmaceuticals has expanded its global operations to Morris Plains, New Jersey. The first-generation, research-driven, diversified global biopharmaceuticals leader worked with our New Jersey India Center to position itself for success in the United States.
Between decorating and holiday shopping, we hope you’ll take a few minutes to read our latest blog discussing the rich past, present, and future of manufacturing in our State. It may even inspire you to purchase some gifts made here in New Jersey!
