Agriculture biotech firm Syngenta is planning another expansion to its campus in Research Triangle Park, creating 150 jobs in the next five years, officials said Tuesday.

Switzerland-based Syngenta will invest $94 million in a new lab and offices in the Triangle.

The company recently opened a $72 million greenhouse complex in RTP that featured 30 climate-controlled “environments,” allowing crops to be tested under various conditions.

Syngenta already employs more than 1,100 people in North Carolina. The average salary of the new jobs will be $81,624 a year, plus benefits.

“This is an extraordinary time of growth for agriculture in North Carolina,” Michiel van Lookeren Campagne, president of Syngenta Biotechnology Inc., said in a statement. “We are proud to be a part of the region’s growing agricultural technology cluster.”

State officials awarded the company a Jobs Development Investment Grant of up to $3 million if it meets job creation and investment targets in the next 12 years. The North Carolina Community College System also will provide $210,000 in worker training.

North Carolina competed against several states and countries such as China for the Syngenta expansion, officials said.
