Skin care manufacturer leaves Bergen County for new site in Paterson

PATERSON — A Hackensack-based skin products manufacturer was considering moving its operations to Rockland County, but instead has relocated to Paterson after getting $9.3 million in tax credits from the state.

The company, Biogenesis, brings 78 jobs to Paterson and officials say 18 of them have been given to city residents.

Biogenesis had outgrown its facilities in Hackensack and Teterboro and was looking to move for several years, according to its chief operating officer, Kevin Rabbani.
