In what would be another gigantic win for the local economy, ProKidney Corp., a publicly traded company based out of Winston-Salem, is seeking incentives of over $15 million from Guilford County government for a $458 million facility in Greensboro that will create 330 new jobs.

ProKidney is a biotech company that’s developing new treatments for kidney disease – especially for the late stages of the disease.

Nearly always, when a company is at the point of getting a hearing from Guilford County for an incentives package, it means the decision has already been made to locate in the county.

The company describes itself as a pioneer in the treatment of chronic kidney disease.

Company materials state that, while current treatments can slow the progression of kidney failure, there’s currently no cure.

The company describes itself as  a clinical-stage biotechnology company with “a transformative proprietary cell therapy platform with the potential for treating Chronic Kidney Disease using a patient’s own cells,” and adds that it “seeks to redefine the treatment of Chronic Kidney Disease” away from managing kidney failure, to the “restoration or improvement of kidney function to stop or delay progression of CKD.”

The company’s main product, known as REACT, is designed to stabilize and improve kidney function.

This huge investment in Greensboro would be akin to the one being made in Guilford County by Boom Supersonic.
