New jobs are coming to northwestern Vermont thanks to the expansion of the Mylan Technologies plant.
Mylan hosted a ribbon cutting Wednesday to announce the completion of an 85,000-square-foot addition to its plant in St. Albans.
The pharmaceutical company makes transdermal patches.
The expansion of the plant will bring 160 new jobs, adding to the 591 people the company currently employs in Franklin County.
Local officials say it's the latest example of new investment in St. Albans.
"It's attracting small businesses along with larger businesses, so it's an ongoing process and every day there's something new popping up here in St. Albans. So, it just continues to snowball and grow," St. Albans Mayor Liz Gamache said.
The new jobs at Mylan may help to blunt the impact of the jobs being lost at the Energizer plant, which is set to close at the end of this month.
