Gulf Biotech Company, a venture backed by Saudi investors, plans to set up a new insulin factory in Bahrain at an investment of $93 million, said a report.

The project is being backed by an alliance involving global multinationals Merck, Helm and Linde, reported the Gulf Daily News.

The construction work on the new 16,000 sq m factory in Salman Industrial City will soon get underway and is expected to start operations in the next two years, the report added.
