Perrigo Plans Another Expansion
ALLEGAN — Perrigo Co. will hold a press conference at 2 p.m. today to announce a $25 million expansion of its manufacturing and production facilities at its headquarters in Allegan.
“This is a planned expansion we’ve been planning for a quite a while,” said Arthur Shannon, vice president of investor relations and communications.
In July Perrigo announced its intention to invest $10.5 million to expand its training, development and office facilities in Allegan. The company said that expansion will add some 400 jobs over the next five years and will set the stage for its future growth. That project received state tax credits valued at $8.4 million over the next 12 years.
“Perrigo’s plans are one more step in reshaping Michigan’s economy and West Michigan’s leadership position in the health and science industries,” said Perrigo’s president, chairman and CEO Joseph C. Papa.
