According to the press release, BioTechnique is a pharmaceutical contract development manufacturing operation that provides development services for cancer therapies, novel vaccines, hormonal therapies, and DEA controlled substances.
“Just months ago, my administration was thrilled to support BioTechnique in its growth and welcome the company to Pennsylvania,” said Gov. Wolf. “This investment into York County not only exemplifies how Pennsylvania’s business climate is ideal for growing companies but also creates dozens of new jobs for the community.”
The relocation included the transfer of equipment, staff, and customers to Conewago Township, according to the press release, and brought an over $22 million investment, as well. The 160,000-square-foot building was once a Unilife pharmaceutical manufacturing facility.
“This is testament to our Commonwealth and County’s rich manufacturing and life science industries,” Schreiber said. “[PSC Biotech] brings more than two decades providing life sciences with essential services to ensure that healthcare products are developed, manufactured, and distributed to the highest standards, Biotech will generate an estimated 100 jobs over the next three years.”
