CONCORD, N.C. (AP) — Pharmaceutical giant Eli Lilly and Co. will build a new manufacturing operation in central North Carolina on the site of a former cigarette plant that’s already attracted other companies to the region. Eli Lilly plans a five-building campus at The Grounds economic development site in Concord. The company and government officials made the announcement Friday. Indianapolis-based Eli Lilly will manufacture parenteral — or injectable — products and devices at the plant. Average salaries will be nearly $70,000. State and local incentives are part of the deal. The company also announced in 2020 that it would build a plant in Research Triangle Park.
