TOWN OF NEWBURGH – A pharmaceutical
sourcing and distribution services company is going to invest $39.3 million
to build a state-of-the-art distribution center in the Town of Newburgh
and create 121 new jobs.
AmerisourceBergen will receive up to $1 million in performance-based Excelsior
Jobs Program Tax Credits from the state with the company agreeing to hire
the new employees in the next two years and maintain those staffing levels
through at least 2025.
“Located at the intersection of two major interstates, the Town
of Newburgh is ideal for intensive employment businesses,” said
Town Supervisor Gilbert Piaquadio.
The project will bring “much-needed jobs to residents and help our
economy continue to grow,” said Orange County Executive Steven Neuhaus.
AmerisourceBergen has 26 other distribution centers and four specialty
distribution centers in the United States.
