Huvepharma will expand its poultry vaccine plant in Scotland County.
The company will invest $1.9 million and add 10 new jobs as it expands its Maxton facility to include more manufacturing and warehouse space.
The company manufactures a vaccine that protects broiler chicks from a harmful disease, helping the poultry industry avoid significant economic losses. The company’s expansion will add a new processing production line to the facility as well as warehouse space.
Partnering with the North Carolina Department of Commerce and the Economic Development Partnership of North Carolina on this project were the North Carolina General Assembly, the North Carolina Community College System, the North Carolina Biotechnology Center, Richmond Community College, Scotland County, and the Scotland County Economic Development Corporation.
