Date:7/25/2012

HARRISBURG, Pa., July 25, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Governor Tom Corbett announced today that Eurofins Lancaster Laboratories will expand its operations in Pennsylvania by constructing a new laboratory facility in Lancaster County and creating 200 new jobs. 

"Eurofins Lancaster Laboratories is a true Pennsylvania success that continues to grow and create jobs in the region," said Corbett. "Today's announcement means that the company will grow from 844 employees to more than 1,000 employees. The impact on the community is significant and one the commonwealth is proud to support."

Eurofins Lancaster Laboratories will construct a four-story, 78,000-square-foot laboratory building on its existing campus which will be used for biopharmaceutical, pharmaceutical and food testing. The company will invest more than $17 million to build the new facility and purchase new lab equipment. Eurofins Lancaster Laboratories will retain its existing 844 Pennsylvania employees and create at least 200 new jobs within four years.      

The company received a $700,000 funding offer from the Department of Community and Economic Development, including a $300,000 Pennsylvania First grant and $400,000 in Job Creation Tax Credits.    

"We are pleased to announce this significant expansion of our operations in Lancaster County and are very appreciative of the support from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. This project is another example of the commitment of Eurofins Scientific to continued growth and investment in its laboratory operations in North America," said Dr. Timothy S. Oostdyk, president, Eurofins Lancaster Laboratories.

The project was coordinated by the Governor's Action Team, or GAT, a group of economic development professionals who work directly with businesses that are considering locating or expanding in Pennsylvania. GAT provides site selection assistance, coordinates the involvement of other state agencies as needed, and packages the appropriate economic development funding for the project.
