Laboratory Expansion

Cincinnati lab expansion to create 60 jobs within three years

A pharmaceuticals company says it expects to hire more people at its Cincinnati laboratory. Barr Laboratories said today it expects to add 60 jobs within the next three years at the laboratory, which currently employs about 370 people. Ohio provided tax credits and money for training in order to persuade Barr Laboratories to go ahead with the expansion. Barr Laboratories acquired the Cincinnati lab in its 587 (m) million-dollar merger with Duramed Pharmaceuticals in 2001.
