Forest Pharmaceuticals to break ground in Blue Ash | Business
BLUE ASH, OH (FOX19) - Another company will soon call the City of Blue Ash “home.” Forest Pharmaceuticals will break ground on a new packaging facility in Blue Ash on January 17 at 1pm.
Site preparation and demolition continues at the site, which is located at Kenwood Road and Osborne Boulevard. The property was formerly home to Osborne Trucking Company and Kraft Foods. Forest Pharmaceuticals operates its manufacturing operations in Oakley, and Blue Ash will serve as the packaging site.
The packaging facility, which also will include office space for the company, will be about 190,000 square feet. It will include warehousing, packaging, and component testing. Construction is slated to be complete by July 2014.
“This is another big win for Blue Ash,” said Assistant City Manager Kelly Harrington. “Forest recognized that Blue Ash is a hub for medical and high tech businesses, which makes it a great fit for the company.”
Forest has stated its investment in the Blue Ash location will approach $45 million dollars. This new facility will bring 125 jobs to the Blue Ash area.
