California company could create 200 jobs in north Ga.
By Greg Bluestein
A California-based pharmaceutical company is expected to soon announce 200 new jobs move to metro Atlanta’s exurbs, according to two people with direct knowledge of the deal.
PureTek is considering a site in Jackson County for manufacturing and headquarters facilities, the two people said. They requested anonymity because they didn’t have permission to speak publicly ahead of the announcement.
PureTek is based in San Fernando, Calif. and specializes in manufacturing bulk pharmaceuticals for drug companies. The company declined to comment, as did Jackson County officials.
The company’s decision would be a boost to Georgia’s ramped up efforts to recruit biotech and pharmaceutical industry jobs. A public announcement is expected within days.
