Startup Genzada to build new HQ, renovate manufacturing facility in Kansas

Startup drugmaker Genzada Pharmaceuticals said it will build new headquarters in Sterling, KS, and renovate an existing building to house a “small-scale” manufacturing facility and R&D facility.

The company said it expects to create as many as 25 to 30 new jobs in the south-central Kansas town. The expansion for the headquarters is expected to be 10,000-square feet and be completed sometime next year, KWCH12 reported.

"The new space will allow us to continue to expand on achieving our mission, which is to eliminate diseases that induce human suffering,” Jason West, Genzada’s EVP, told the television station.
