Whippany, N.J. - 16 October 2013 - Bayer HealthCare has opened its new U.S. headquarters on a 94-acre campus in Whippany, New Jersey, within Hanover Township, New Jersey. The new Headquarters consolidates Bayer HealthCare's operations that previously operated from Morristown, Montville and Wayne, N.J. and Tarrytown, N.Y. into one location. The 700,000 square-foot-office space features state-of-the-art technology and a modern open design for the approximately 2,400 employees now based at the new location. 

"The opening of our new Headquarters culminates the incredible year that Bayer has experienced, with the introduction of five new drugs ranging from Oncology to Women's Healthcare to Cardiovascular," said Phil Blake, President, Bayer Corporation. 

"Although the aim of this project is to bring our employees together in one location, this initiative is about growing together as well as building the brand and reputation of our company," said Marijn Dekkers, Chairman, Bayer AG Group, Board of Management. "Whippany is our footprint on the East Coast now, as we invest further in the U.S."

This new facility will provide a state-of-the-art workplace for more than 2,000 employees while promoting responsible environmentally-friendly policies and practices. I congratulate and thank Bayer for their commitment to our state and residents."
