“Welcoming innovator biopharmaceutical companies like Ipsen to New Jersey is critical to the Christie Administration’s economic growth agenda,” says Linda Kellner, Acting Executive Director of the New Jersey Business Action Center. “Ipsen’s move to the ‘medicine chest of the world’ heralds high-quality jobs for Garden State residents and enhanced development of innovative medicines for US patients in need.”

During the Christie Administration’s first two years, New Jersey added more than 60,600 new private sector jobs and attracted scores of companies. According to Rutgers University economist Joe Seneca 2011 was the best private sector job growth year in New Jersey since 2000.

“Ipsen is proud to join and make significant contributions to New Jersey’s community of scientific innovators,” says Sean McKercher, President and General Manager, Ipsen North America. “This move provides an optimal opportunity to support continued market growth and advance our commitment to champion medicines for underserved patient populations.”
