From 12 to 500. That’s the employment count at Pii (Pharmaceutics International, Inc.), a pharmaceutical manufacturing firm headquartered in Hunt Valley. Pii has added 300 employees in Hunt Valley over the past three years alone and expects to add 20 to 30 more jobs by the end of 2012.
The life sciences company has been honored with the 2012 Baltimore County New Directions Award, awarded by the Baltimore County Department of Economic Development to a company that exemplifies the quality and future direction of the County’s business community.
“Pii’s success is a testament to the Baltimore County's scientific talent and entrepreneurial spirit," stated County Executive Kevin Kamenetz in presenting the award to Pii at the Baltimore County Chamber of Commerce Hall of Fame dinner November 14. “With new five products of their own currently at the FDA for approval, we expect even more growth at Pii.”
The company’s pharmaceutical products are manufactured under their own name, as well as under contract for major multinational and virtual pharmaceutical companies across the globe.
