A brightly-lit, 10-story building off Interstate-40 in Durham is now the headquarters for the largest drug development service provider in the world. Quintiles officially dedicated the building on Page Road Thursday with a ceremony attended by hundreds, including Gov. Beverly Perdue and Durham Mayor Bill Bell.
Quintiles has promised to create 1,000 new jobs in North Carolina by 2012 in exchange for approximately $23 million in tax breaks and other incentives. More than 400 jobs have already been created.
