Montgomery County Executive Isiah Leggett will participate in a groundbreaking ceremony for QIAGEN’s 117,000-square-foot, $52 million expansion project, which will allow the company to consolidate many of its Maryland manufacturing operations and offices, and add more than 90 new jobs within the next five years.

Leggett will join Congresswoman Donna Edwards, Montgomery County Council President Nancy Floreen, Montgomery County Councilmember Mike Knapp, State Senator Rob Garagiola, State Delegate Brian Feldman, Maryland Department of Business and Economic Development Secretary Christian Johansson, and other elected officials, QIAGEN executives and staff, and representatives from the region’s biotech industry.

QIAGEN opened its North America headquarters and manufacturing center in Germantown in 2002.  Since then, QIAGEN has made significant investments in Montgomery County and Maryland, including its acquisitions of Gaithersburg-based Digene and Frederick-based SABiosciences.  With headquarters in Germany, the company has more than 3,500 global employees – and nearly 700 in Maryland – including 585 between its Gaithersburg and Germantown campuses.
