Gov. Bruce Rauner met with members of the Fresenius Kabi leadership team, including two members from the Illinois headquarters, at the company’s home outside of Frankfurt, Germany. Fresenius Kabi offered the Governor and his delegation an update on their current expansion projects and a tour of their facility.

“We have experienced an increase in interest by businesses within the life science and biotech industry cluster due to the success and growth of companies like Fresenius Kabi,” said Illinois Department of Commerce Director Sean McCarthy. “The State, along with our partners at Intersect Illinois, will continue to market this industry and build upon our identified competitive advantage to attract further investment, spur innovation and create jobs.”
   
"We’re pleased to welcome Governor Rauner and the entire trade delegation,” said John Ducker, president and CEO of Fresenius Kabi USA. “We’re proud of our operations in Illinois and throughout the world where we develop and produce life-saving medicines and technologies for patients. In Illinois, continued investment is a priority so that more patients can benefit from access to affordable medicines throughout the United States.”
