Construction on a $113 million, 40-acre campus for AmerisourceBergen Specialty Group will start this month in Carrollton, which will make enough room for the North Texas company to add more than 1,000 employees. The company plans to relocate its regional office to the Offices at Austin Ranch near Parker Road and Plano Parkway in Carrollton upon completion of the facility. The company plans to initially bring 1,184 employees to the new campus in 2018, with another wave of 800 employees joining the group a few years later.
Carrollton expects the company will employ up to 3,023 workers in the future, with an average annual salary of $72,000. Based in Pennsylvania, the company is one of the world's largest pharmaceutical service companies with over $140 billion in annual sales.
