Meissner Corporation

Today, Governor Brian Kemp announced that 1,700 new jobs are coming to Athens-Clarke County. The Meissner Corporation will invest nearly $250 million in a new facility located in Winterville.

The Meissner Corporation is one of the world’s largest privately held companies in the bioprocessing sector; known for developing, manufacturing and supplying products for pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical industries.

The company played a leading role in the industry’s response to COVID-19 by producing single-use systems that are critical components used in vaccine manufacturing.

Operations are expected to begin in early 2026.
