Maschke said the site is a good choice for the company, citing its location in the Mid-Atlantic region, the home of many pharmaceutical and other health care companies.
Branner said the town stood ready to assist Datwyler and noted its success in landing Amazon and retaining an expanded Johnson Controls presence in the town.
The Swiss-based company said the site would be Datwyler’s most advanced state-of-the-art manufacturing facility for high-quality elastomer components for injectable drug delivery systems used in the global health care industry.
