The Development Authority of Bryan County will announce Thursday that a new tenant is coming to the Interstate Centre industrial park.
The information is being released in conjunction with an announcement that will be made by the Georgia Department of Economic Development and Governor Sonny Perdue in California, DA Executive Director Jean Bacon said.
Bacon said Tuesday she could not divulge any additional information, but both announcements will come simultaneously Thursday.
Perdue is attending the 2008 BIO International Convention in San Diego, according to a press release issued Tuesday.
"As one of the fastest-growing industries in the nation, the biosciences sector is a strategic priority for Georgia and a driving force behind our future growth," Perdue is quoted as saying in the release, which does not mention Bryan County. "Our leadership in university-based research, strong biosciences talent, a spirit of collaboration as evidenced by very effective public-private partnerships and global access to international capital markets truly position Georgia as the crossroads of global health."
Among the larger businesses currently operating in the Interstate Centre are Oracal and Oneida, which together employ approximately 194 people.
