A pharmaceutical ingredients plant in Petersburg that closed in 2014 has reopened and expects to hire more than 110 people over the next two years.
AMPAC Fine Chemicals, a manufacturer of active pharmaceutical ingredients, held an event Monday to officially reopen the plant on North Normandy Drive.
The factory now employs about 50 people.
AMPAC, which is owned by South Korea-based investment firm SK Holdings, is making infrastructure upgrades to the 200-acre site.
The plant previously was owned by Boehringer Ingelheim Chemicals Inc., which closed it in 2014.
