SCA Pharmaceuticals is creating a new 90,000-square-foot manufacturing facility in Windsor, CT. The Arkansas-based company has plans to create approximately 361 new jobs over the next four years. SCA manufactures injectable pharmaceuticals in ready-to-administer dosages for use at hospitals and healthcare facilities.
“Connecticut represents an ideal location for SCA, driven by its incredible workforce and myriad of transportation options,” said Dr. Gene Graves, CEO of SCA.
The Connecticut Department of Economic and Community Development (DECD), will support the project with an $8.5 million loan for leasehold improvements and the purchase of machinery and equipment. The funding will require approval from the state Bond Commission.
“The commitment from SCA Pharmaceuticals to choose Connecticut for its expansion reinforces how our strategic location and world-class workforce makes our state a great place for businesses that are looking to bring their operations to the east coast,” said Governor Dannel P. Malloy. “This is an important sector of our economy, and we are thrilled that this company is adding hundreds of good, high-quality jobs in our state.”
“For the past six years, Connecticut has made major investments in manufacturing, bioscience, and workforce development,” said Lt. Governor Nancy Wyman. “These investments position us to attract new business and development, grow jobs, and further establish Connecticut as a global competitor in bioscience and healthcare. I welcome SCA Pharmaceuticals to the state.”
“The decision of SCA Pharmaceuticals to expand its operations into Connecticut is another example of how we are successfully attracting new jobs and capital investment to our state,” said DECD Commissioner Catherine Smith. “It also underscores the importance of Bradley International Airport to our economy, as the company chose a location in close proximity so it could get its products to customers quickly and easily.”
