LOS ANGELES, Aug. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Today Grifols was honored at the California State Legislature by state Senator Kevin de Leon (D- Los Angeles) and Assembly Member Jimmy Gomez (D- East Los Angeles) marking the 10 th Anniversary of the Company's establishment of its U.S. headquarters in Los Angeles, and a decade of conducting business in California and improving the health and well-being of people around the world.

Grifols, a global healthcare company based in Barcelona, Spain, produces life-saving plasma medicines out of human plasma for people with rare, chronic and life-threatening conditions. California is one of Grifols' largest and most important business hubs with Los Angeles housing the company's U.S. headquarters and its 350,000 square-foot state-of-the-art manufacturing facility.   Grifols acquired the El Sereno facility in East Los Angeles in 2003. Since then, it has completed a large scale $135 million dollar capital investment project that includes the construction of a new 95,000 square foot, intravenous immune globulin (IVIG) production facility.   

"Grifols is proud of the Company's significant investments in the state, reflecting our strong commitment to California and to meeting the needs patients who rely on life-saving plasma therapies well into the future," commented Greg Rich, CEO of Grifols Inc. 

"Grifols is pleased to employ over 1,200 Californians in high-quality skilled jobs and continues to foster a thriving workforce in Los Angeles and across the state," said Willie Zuniga, President of Grifols Biologicals Inc., who has also developed strong partnerships with Los Angeles Trade Technical College, California State University, Los Angeles, and the Wilshire-Metro WorkSource Center to promote education, job training and skills development for area residents.

In addition to the Los Angeles site, Grifols operates a 140,000 square-foot climate-controlled plasma warehouse and final packaging center in the City of Industry and owns and operates six plasma donation centers from San Diego to Bakersfield, where Californians donate their plasma for the production of life-saving medicines.
