Amneal Pharmaceuticals LLC is expanding its operation in Glasgow, adding 48 new jobs to the company’s existing staff of 35.
Established in 2002, Amneal Pharmaceuticals develops, manufactures and distributes generic pharmaceuticals and is currently the 10th largest U.S. generic supplier in number of prescriptions dispensed, according to March 2010 IMS Health data.
The company plans to consolidate its distribution logistics and sales operations into a significantly larger 115,000-s.f. facility in Glasgow that will combine distribution from the Long Island, N.Y., facilities and the current operation in Fountain Run, Ky.
“Amneal carefully evaluated relocating our combined sales operations and distribution center near our headquarters and manufacturing plants in metro New York or continuing operations in Glasgow,” said Jim Luce, Amneal executive vice president, sales and marketing. “In addition to compelling economic incentives, we recognized that the superb quality and dedication of Glasgow’s workforce is a key factor in Amneal’s reputation for service excellence, so the decision to stay and expand operations in Kentucky was an easy one.”
