WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. — The expansion of a manufacturing facility is now underway in Lycoming County.
West Pharmaceutical Services is a leading provider of packaging components, delivery systems for injectable drugs, and other health care products.
A groundbreaking ceremony was held today for the company's new 37,000-square-foot manufacturing building spanning three stories next door to the plant in Williamsport.
The expansion is expected to bring more jobs to Lycoming County.
"We're approximating 30 family-sustaining positions to start. As production continues to grow, I am assuming 45 to 50 new positions at the Williamsport facility alone," said Dave Lanzer, site director.
The project is set to be completed in October of next year.
