Alcon is investing $250 million to develop a modern factory on the Ciba Vision Campus in Johns Creek, near Atlanta, Georgia. In the framework of this expansion, Alcon aims to create about 300 new jobs. Alcon currently employs more than 1,500 people on the campus, where the company conducts research, develops and manufactures new products, and manages its distribution. Alcon and Ciba Vision merged in April last year.
