Electronic cigarette maker Juul to open facility in Research Triangle Park

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, NC (WNCN) – Juul plans to open a new facility in the Research Triangle Park area, a company spokesperson said on Tuesday.

In a statement, the e-cigarette producer said it plans to continue “advancing the harm reduction potential for adult smokers while combating underage use.”

In June, Juul and North Carolina Attorney General Josh Stein reached a deal that will require the e-cigarette company to pay $ 40 million and make changes to its business.

Juul’s full statement reads as follows:

“We are preparing to launch a new facility in the Research Triangle that will provide high-quality full-time jobs to a diverse and inclusive workforce as part of our commitment to continue to generate scientific data and evidence. evidence on our products for our regulatory submissions. We will continue to seek to earn the trust of key stakeholders, including local officials, as we advance the harm reduction potential for adult smokers while combating underage use. “
