Baxter marks completion of $270 million Alabama expansion project

OPELIKA, Alabama – Medical device company Baxter marked the completion today of a $270 million expansion project that more than doubled the size of its Alabama production facility, along with its workforce.

The expansion brings the total current size of the Opelika facility to 400,000 square feet, roughly the size of seven football fields. Three years ago, Baxter broke ground on the project that added four production lines and 230,000 square feet to the facility.

Before the project’s launch in 2014, a total of 170 people worked in Baxter’s Opelika plant. This expansion will more than double that number to more than 350.

The project’s completion was celebrated at a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the facility this morning.
