Boehringer Ingelheim is laying off but others are hiring! Check it out! (Isn't it tempting?)
Just a few years after investing more than $100 million in its Petersburg plant, Boehringer Ingelheim Chemicals Inc. said Thursday it will close the facility by the end of 2014, eliminating 240 jobs and a major source of tax revenue for the city. The company said it plans to phase out employment in a multistage process starting at the end of this year. The plant, which includes several facilities on about 180 acres in south Petersburg, manufactures chemical active ingredients used by the pharmaceutical industry in drugs.
Don't forget, hundreds of biopharma companies are hiring! (We know you can't resist.)
