As part of a $190-million investment,
will be renovating its Mississauga campus to accommodate as many as 200 new employees.
"It's re-purposing the existing facilities," says Roche spokesman Mike Vesik. "We don't have enough room to build up on the property. We're taking a section of our warehouse to accommodate the new positions."
Vesik said renovations, which were to include new infrastructure and amenities such as a cafeteria, were going to begin immediately.
The $190-million, which includes $7.79 million from Ontario's Ministry of Economic Development and Trade
, will make the Mississauga campus into what Roche is calling a "global site for pharmaceutical development."
