Governor Beverly Perdue announced Monday that Becton, Dickinson and Company (BD) will invest $38.4 million to build a warehouse and distribution center in Johnston County.

It's mean about 187 jobs over three years beginning in 2012.

Perdue said BD would collect a $600,000 grant from the One North Carolina Fund for the project.

"BD’s presence is another example of why North Carolina has been consistently ranked among the nation’s top states in biotechnology and life sciences," said Gov. Perdue.

BD manufactures and sells medical devices and chemicals used for research, improving drug delivery and diagnosing infectious diseases and cancers

It has five other facilities in North Carolina.

Salaries for the new jobs will vary by job function, but will average around $28,000 plus benefits.
