Greater Louisville has a thriving slate of headquarters on its corporate resume, and attracting more is high on the list of city officials. With the advantages of world class multimodal logistical benefits, low cost of doing business, an educated workforce, great quality of life and support from local government, the region is an ideal place to headquarter a business.

Evidence of those attraction efforts is the recent announcement by PharmaCord LLC to move its headquarters and call center to Louisville. PharmaCord LLC, which provides patient case management and pharmaceutical distribution through a national mail-order pharmacy, is considering establishing its corporate headquarters, call center and mail-order pharmacy operations in Louisville.

The company plans a $7.3 million investment in the facility, which will initially create 50 jobs, with a target of 180 jobs within one year and 300 jobs in two years. The Kentucky Economic Development Finance Authority preliminarily approved the company for tax incentives up to $4 million through the Kentucky Business Investment program.
