Bayer HealthCare plans to invest about $10 million in its facilities in the greater Kansas City area.
The German company, which makes health care products for humans and animals, said Monday it will spend about $6.5 million to combine manufacturing operations of three locations in the St. Joseph area into one site.
Bayer will also transfer regulatory and development work to Shawnee, Kan., its U.S. headquarters. It will spend about $3.5 million on the Shawnee site.
The moves, which are aimed at enhancing the efficiency of Bayer’s operations in the area, follow the company’s January 2013 acquisition of Teva Pharmaceuticals.
