Tribune photo by Aaron Piper/ Several of Kremers Urban Pharmaceuticals' products are on display in the lobby of the Seymour facility. Kremers Urban is planning a $22 million expansion to its Seymour plant located at Freeman Field Industrial Park.
City and local economic officials hope Monday’s announcement of expansion by Kremers Urban Pharmaceuticals in Seymour is a sign of good things to come in 2013.
“It’s a good way to start the year,” Jim Plump, executive director of Jackson County Industrial Development Corp., said of the drugmaker’s planned $22 million investment to add manufacturing space at its facility at 1101 C Ave. West in Freeman Field Industrial Park.
That space is needed as a result of a shift in the company’s focus from producing branded products to generic medications, Kremers controller Tom Lewis said.
“We have a lot of new products launching, some of which are slated to come out as early as later this year,” he said.
