Bayer HealthCare Expands in Minnesolta
Jan. 19--Bayer HealthCare on Wednesday announced the opening of a new and expanded facility in Coon Rapids that nearly doubles its space in Minnesota.
The facility houses Bayer's Interventional franchise and features new research and development labs as well as manufacturing clean rooms. Bayer's Interventional business discovers, markets and manufactures therapeutic medical devices, such as Cotavance, a drug-eluting balloon used to treat peripheral artery disease that has been approved for use in the European Union.
Bayer HealthCare , a subgroup of Bayer AG headquartered in Leverkusen, Germany, employs about 225 people locally.
