FRANKFORT, Ky. – A2A Pharmaceutical Network, a pharmaceutical manufacturing, wholesale and technology organization, will expand its operations with a new headquarters facility in Scottsville, investing a combined $1.7 million-plus and creating 27 full-time jobs for residents in the community.
Gov. Andy Beshear announced the expansion project today.
The A2A Pharmaceuticals Network strategically provides manufacturing, distribution, logistics and technology in the form of procurement and acquisition support, supply chain management, and contract and program management services to a variety of industries, including the U.S. Federal Government Health Systems and niche commercial markets.
The organization recognizes the industry need for a variety of flexible, evolving health care services, and the owners maintain a diligent focus on continuous improvement while maintaining quality of service and operational synergy. A2A was awarded several U.S. federal contracts earlier this year to provide these critical health care products and services.
A2A Pharmaceutical Network’s planned investment adds to a thriving logistics and distribution sector in the commonwealth. In 2021, companies within the sector announced more than 1,000 full-time, Kentucky-resident jobs across more than 30 facility expansion and new-location projects with $181.7 million in private-sector investment in the commonwealth.
“Kentucky is the ideal location for companies looking to expand their operations to reach their customers more efficiently,” said Gov. Beshear. “Our economic momentum is showing no signs of slowing down, and that is a testament to our location, resources and workforce. The A2A Pharmaceutical Network is a quality organization bringing its primary business operations to the commonwealth, and I look forward to supporting their continued success.”
The environmentally conscious, state-of-the-art facility will locate in the Allen Springs Industrial Park in Scottsville. The new location will include increased operations and workforce as well as support to the company’s warehousing and distribution capabilities, with a centralized distribution process and platform. This will be A2A’s second manufacturing location in Kentucky, with an existing facility in southern Kentucky, and will serve as the company’s new headquarters, relocating from Nashville.
“It’s been said that the journey of 1,000 miles begins with one step, and we hope to take that next step as we move forward in locating the A2A Pharmaceutical Network and their job opportunities in Scottsville,” said Rondal Turner, president and CEO of A2A. “We wish to thank Team Kentucky, the Cabinet for Economic Development, Corky Peek, Johnny Hobdy, IDA director and board of Allen County, and the elected officials of Allen County for their assistance in making this happen.”
