Governor Hogan Visits Novavax Headquarters in Gaithersburg
On Thursday, June 10th Governor Larry Hogan visited Gaithersburg-based Novavax. The 700 Quince Orchard Road property started renovations in 2020 and it’s expected to open for operation in the following weeks.
Novavax (Nasdaq: NVAX) is a quick growing biotechnology company developing next-generation vaccines for serious infectious diseases. Novavax is expecting to play a huge role in public health as it develops a candidate vaccine against COVID-19 and advances its influenza vaccine for global markets. The company already has plans for a global production network once the trials are completed and approved.
The company publicly stated, “We appreciate the support, partnership and speed of the Maryland Department of Commerce, Montgomery County, and the City of Gaithersburg, which have enabled the expansion of our operations, enhanced our ability to retain and attract highly skilled employees, and reinforced our longstanding commitment to the biotechnology sector in Maryland.”
They have future plans of expanding in Gaithersburg too. A company affiliate purchased a 9.7 acre parcel of land at 14 Firstfield Road.
