WORCESTER, Mass., Sept. 28, 2022 /CNW/ -- WuXi Biologics ("WuXi Bio") (2269.HK), a global Contract Research, Development and Manufacturing Organization (CRDMO), held a topping-off ceremony, in partnership with the Worcester Business Development Corporation (WBDC), to mark the completion of the steel frame for WuXi Biologics' newest commercial biomanufacturing facility.
