CLINTON TWP — Due to increasing demand for its products worldwide, Bayer opened a new $11 million, 60,000-square-foot raw materials hub Tuesday, May 16 at 150 Victory Road outside of Saxonburg.

“The Hub” was built to address current internal and external market trends such as the rising global demand for the company’s radiology products by doubling its capacity for storing raw materials supplies, according to Alfred Merz, senior vice president of product supply medical device operations at Bayer.

Merz said the facility “represents an investment in our operations in the Pittsburgh region. In addition to renovating our sites for efficiency, we are adding new production capacity, growing our local workforce and deepening our community partnerships.”

A German multinational pharmaceutical and biotechnology company, Bayer’s products and services aim to help people and the planet by supporting efforts to master the challenges presented by a growing and aging population, Merz said.
