A2A Pharmaceutical Network, pharmaceutical manufacturing, wholesale and tech organization, will expand its operations with a new headquarters facility in Scottsville, investing a combined $1.7 million-plus and creating 27 full-time jobs for residents in the community.
“Kentucky is the ideal location for companies looking to expand their operations to reach their customers more efficiently,” said Gov. Beshear. “Our economic momentum is showing no signs of slowing down, and that is a testament to our location, resources and workforce. The A2A Pharmaceutical Network is a quality organization bringing its primary business operations to the commonwealth, and I look forward to supporting their continued success.”
The environmentally conscious, state-of-the-art facility will locate in the Allen Springs Industrial Park in Scottsville. The new location will include increased operations and workforce as well as support to the company’s warehousing and distribution capabilities, with a centralized distribution process and platform. This will be A2A’s second manufacturing location in Kentucky, with an existing facility in southern Kentucky, and will serve as the company’s new headquarters, relocating from Nashville, Tennessee.
“It’s been said that the journey of 1,000 miles begins with one step, and we hope to take that next step as we move forward in locating the A2A Pharmaceutical Network and their job opportunities in Scottsville,” said Rondal Turner, president and CEO of A2A. “We wish to thank Team Kentucky, the Cabinet for Economic Development, Corky Peek, Johnny Hobdy, IDA director and board of Allen County, and the elected officials of Allen County for their assistance in making this happen.”
The A2A Pharmaceuticals Network strategically provides manufacturing, distribution, logistics and technology in the form of procurement and acquisition support, supply chain management, and contract and program management services to a variety of industries, including the U.S. Federal Government Health Systems and niche commercial markets. The organization recognizes the industry need for a variety of flexible, evolving health care services, and the owners maintain a diligent focus on continuous improvement while maintaining quality of service and operational synergy. A2A was awarded several U.S. Federal Contracts earlier this year to provide these critical health care products and services.
A2A Pharmaceutical Network’s planned investment adds to a thriving logistics and distribution sector in the commonwealth. In 2021, companies within the sector announced more than 1,000 full-time, Kentucky-resident jobs across more than 30 facility expansion and new-location projects with $181.7 million in private-sector investment in the commonwealth.
Allen County Judge/Executive Dennis Harper shared his excitement and appreciation for A2A’s commitment to the community.
“I would like to welcome A2A Pharmaceuticals to Allen County,” Judge/Executive Harper said. “New job creators are very important for everyone’s economy. Thank you for choosing Allen County. I look forward to a long, fruitful, corporate relationship.”
Scottsville Mayor David Burch shared his sentiments on the expansion, noting his optimism in growing the economy of the community.
“The City of Scottsville is excited about A2A Pharmaceuticals locating in the Allen Springs Industrial Park and looking forward to a partnership that brings jobs and growth to our community,” said Mayor Burch. “I’d like to thank Judge/Executive Dennis Harper for his continued partnership of working with the City of Scottsville in bringing opportunities to Allen County.”
Jordan Clarke, board chairman of the Allen County Industrial Development Authority, is optimistic about the partnership between the company and community.
“The Industrial Development Authority is thrilled to welcome the A2A Pharmaceutical Network to Allen Springs Industrial Park,” said Clarke. “The city and county have been instrumental in helping get the park ready to bring in new jobs and we know A2A will be a terrific community partner.”
A2A Pharmaceuticals’ investment and planned job creation furthers recent economic momentum in the commonwealth, as the state builds back stronger from the effects of the pandemic.
In addition, the A2A Pharmaceutical Network can receive resources from Kentucky’s workforce service providers. Those include no-cost recruitment and job placement services, reduced-cost customized training and job-training incentives.
