A pharmaceuticals company is expanding in Vandalia and a steel and materials transportation company is coming to Franklin, after striking development agreements with JobsOhio, the state’s private development arm.

Adare Pharmaceuticals will create 29 new jobs with a payroll of $1.6 million and a fixed asset investment of $14.2 million, in exchange for a $100,000 state workforce grant.

The company will have nearly 250 workers at 845 Center Drive, Vandalia, in total before the end of the year 2020, said Lauren Panasewicz, a spokeswoman for Adare.

“It’s really an exciting time as the business is growing, and we’re really trying to be seen as an international pharmaceuticals company,” Panasewicz said. “We’re really focusing on our research and development effort across our growing pipeline. And then we also of course continue to advance our capabilities in terms of our manufacturing — and those are both key initiatives at our Vandalia site.”

In Franklin, Allied Crawford Inc. will be at 213 Industrial Drive. These will be 50 new jobs, with the building being renovated and occupied by the company, the state said. It’s the company’s first location in Ohio.

Real estate web site Loopnet described 213 Industrial as a 77,575-square-foot building with 7,700 square feet of office space.

Allied Crawford’s 50 project jobs are expected to yield a $1.45 million payroll, and the company is expected to make a nearly $3.6 million fixed asset investment in exchange for a $85,000 revitalization grant from the state.

A message was left with Allied Crawford at its Petersburg, Va. headquarters Wednesday.
