Pennsylvania Gains from New Pharma HQ

Northern Ireland-based Almac, a provider of research, development, and technology for the pharmaceutical industries, will build a new North American headquarters in Lower Salford Township, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. The new facility will combine and expand the company's two existing operations in the state into a 240,000-square-foot building that company officials expect to begin constructing next year. Along with retaining 495 existing positions, Almac plans to add more than 260 new positions, many of them in software development and laboratory specialties. "Our positive experience to date in Pennsylvania and especially the availability of a skilled and committed workforce was a major factor in this decision," says Sir Allen McClay, Almac's chairperson. Company officials also expect future expansion to create an additional 400 jobs by 2013.
