Cherokee Expanding Former Merck Plant
Cherokee Pharmaceuticals broke ground last week on a $2 million expansion to its active pharmaceutical ingredients (API) plant in Riverside, Pa. Cherokee was acquired from Merck & Co. by PRWT Services earlier this year and has the distinction of being the only minority-owned API producer in the U.S. The new capacity will be housed in a three-story building. Construction is scheduled to be completed by late 2009, and the firm expects to hire 10 to 20 new employees.
