Merck, a New Jersey based pharmaceutical company, will invest $168 million to expand its manufacturing operation in Rockingham County.

The company, which has been operating a plant near Elkton since 1941, will upgrade its plant infrastructure, add manufacturing-related facilities and equipment, and undertake a personnel-training initiative to support the bioprocessing environment.

Governor McAuliffe approved a $1.3 million performance-based grant from the Virginia Investment Partnership program for the project. Funding and services to support the company’s employee retraining activities will be provided through the Virginia Jobs Investment Program.
