RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) - Governor Ralph Northam announced Thursday that 150 new jobs will be coming to Richmond.

GlaxoSmithKline, a global healthcare company, will invest $16.7 million to expand its consumer healthcare research and development center in Richmond.

Richmond is one of three R&D laboratory hubs chosen for expansion.

“We are extremely proud that GSK will make a major investment in the City of Richmond and continue to grow its footprint in Virginia,” said Northam. “The greater Richmond region has emerged as a hub for leading biosciences companies, offering world-class education institutions, research assets, and a pipeline of skilled talent, and GSK’s consumer healthcare joint venture and expansion will further its position as a powerhouse in this industry. We thank GSK for its commitment to our Commonwealth, and stand ready to support the company’s success.”
