​​​FORT WORTH – Locally based dermatological pharmaceuticals company Galderma Laboratories will expand with a $22 million research and development center.

The 100,000-sf expansion will be adjacent to its headquarters at the northeast corner of Texas Longhorn Way and Heritage Pkwy., on the west side of I-35W just north of Alliance Airport. The research and development center, slated to open in 2017, will conduct clinical research and hire life ​sciences professionals including research associates, physicians and biologists.  

Galderma current employs 300 workers in the city, but the expansion will add as many as 350 positions.

In July, the city council approved a ten-year, $635,000 tax incentive for the company. Galderma is also seeking a grant from the Texas Enterprise Fund. 

The company was considering several locations including Princeton, N.J., Boston and San Francisco before settling on this location.
