Mexico's Nealpharma Buys Pfizer Inc. (PFE) Plant in Puerto Rico


10/18/2012 7:58:51 AM

Mexican pharmaceutical maker Neolpharma bought a Pfizer facility in Puerto Rico that was set to close at the end of this year, a media report said. Neither party disclosed the value of the transaction, El Nuevo Dia newspaper said. The US giant announced in May 2010 that it would be closing two of its five factories in Puerto Rico, including the 130,000 sq. meter facility in the San Juan suburb of Caguas. "The sale of the facility in Caguas is a positive result for our colleagues, the Caguas community and for Pfizer," one of the US firm's vice presidents, John Kelly, said. Neolpharma plans to retain 130 of the plant's existing staff and to hire another 60 people on a temporary basis, Kelly said. The Mexican company employs around 1,500 people overall and produces painkillers, anti-cancer drugs and medications for ailments of the heart and central nervous system.
