Welcome to Novo Nordisk in the United States


Clayton, NC

Our first US manufacturing facility for diabetes and obesity medicines was established in Clayton, NC in 1993. The facility has expanded rapidly to meet the increasing demand for our products, both locally and globally. We are now investing $2 billion in a new active pharmaceutical ingredient production facility in Clayton, and so our presence – and the number of people employed here – is growing significantly. This will be the first time in the company’s 95-year history that we have manufactured active ingredients outside Denmark.
