Governor Tony Evers joined with the owners of Nexus Pharmaceuticals, Inc., Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC) Secretary and CEO Missy Hughes, and local leaders celebrated the ribbon-cutting of Nexus Pharmaceuticals’ new manufacturing facility in Pleasant Prairie.

The multi-phase project is expected to be completed within ten years, with an estimated total investment of $250 million. As part of the project’s first phase, Nexus will hire more than 77 workers in the fields of high-tech production, engineering, quality control, and supply chain management, at an average annual salary of $70,000.

The WEDC is supporting the project by authorizing up to $1.5 million in state income tax credits over the next four years.
