PharmaForce aims to expand two of its facilities in Ohio by investing approximately $145 million. The pharmaceutical R&D and manufacturing company will create 80 new jobs and add roughly 142,000 square feet to its New Albany and Hilliard facilities in the Columbus area. 

Located at 6610 New Albany Road E., the New Albany facility will add 140,000 square feet. The company will also reconfigure and remodel a portion of the existing warehouse and production space. In Hilliard, PharmaForce is located at 4150 Lyman Drive. The company intends to upgrade and add 1,800 square feet to its existing facility, with plans to invest in new production equipment and supporting infrastructure.

“Our operations in New Albany and Hilliard have played a critical role in the growth of our company and the investment in our manufacturing, warehouse and R&D capabilities supports that growth,” said PharmaForce Vice President & General Manager Dante Serricchio, in prepared remarks.

Construction and remodeling will start in 2018, with hiring for the new positions beginning next year. The investment is part of the Columbus 2020 regional growth strategy, which also includes the $25.4 million investment in a raw material plant in Heath, Ohio.
