Pine Pharmaceuticals, an affiliate of Niagara Falls-based Pine Pharmacy, kicked off construction on its $5.6 million new facility in TM Montante Development's Riverview Solar Technology Park in Tonawanda, which is expected to create 15 new jobs.
The new 25,000-square-foot facility will include "cleanrooms" to provide specific sterile injectable products for doctors' practices, clinics, hospitals and other medical facilities. The project received tax breaks from the Erie County Industrial Development Agency.
The company said its new facility, which will be built by Montante Construction, will allow it to grow in the future. The company expects the facility to open in fall 2017.
