State officials announced Friday Talecris Biotherapeutics is expanding its operations in North Carolina and add 250 jobs.The expansion is part of a $269 million project.

Commerce Department spokesman Charles Winkler said the company could get nearly $4 million in state incentives if it meets investment and job targets. The incentive package comes with a requirement that the company keep its nearly 2,300 jobs in North Carolina.

Commerce officials say Talecris' new jobs in Clayton will pay average annual salaries of $51,000.
