Moderna Commits To Hiring At Least 155 New Massachusetts-based Employees

Moderna Inc. (MRNA) commits to hiring at least 155 new Massachusetts-based employees for high-tech manufacturing positions in 2021 and retaining them through 2025.

Over the last year, Moderna nearly doubled the size of its workforce, from about 830 employees as of March 31, 2020 to about 1,500 employees as of March 31, 2021.

In the last year, Moderna created more than 650 new jobs at its manufacturing facility in Norwood, Massachusetts. The company continues to expand in Norwood and Cambridge, the company said in a statement.

Moderna recently announced an expansion of the Moderna Technology Center in Norwood, including more than doubling of space to transform the facility from a production and lab space to an industrial technology center.

The company's expansion in Norwood will support a 50% increase in production of the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine from its manufacturing site, which is expected to ramp up in late 2021 and early 2022.

On April 29, Moderna announced an investment at its owned and partnered manufacturing facilities that it expects will increase 2022 global capacity to up to 3 billion doses of its COVID-19 vaccine.
