Pfizer is expected to start building a new pharmaceutical production facility in western Michigan.
The drugmaker will break ground Wednesday on the multi-story, 420,000-square-foot (39,019-square-meter) building on Pfizer’s global manufacturing campus in Portage, MLive.com reported.
It is expected to bring 450 new jobs to the area. The $465 million facility is expected to be in operation in 2025, according to Pfizer.
The new facility will initially manufacture the pain medicine known as Dynastat, which is supplied to several international countries, Pfizer said.
