“Nonprofit drugmaker Civica Rx is investing $27.8 million to establish a new 55,000-square-foot laboratory in Chesterfield County’s Meadowville Technology Park, Gov. Glenn Youngkin announced Thursday.
The expansion will add 51 jobs, according to a news release. The company will also host a scale-up manufacturing facility run by Virginia Commonwealth University’s Medicines for All Institute, which will add more jobs.
The generic drug maker is currently building a 140,000-square-foot, $124.5 million manufacturing facility in Petersburg that will become the Utah-based company’s North American headquarters when it opens in 2024. The Chesterfield lab will support that factory through testing and development of new products.”
