**MEDIA ADVISORY** Senator Yaw to Join Williamsport/Lycoming Chamber, West Pharmaceuticals for Groundbreaking Event

WILLIAMSPORTSenator Gene Yaw (R-23) today announced he will participate in a groundbreaking ceremony for the West Pharmaceutical Services, Inc. expansion at the company’s Williamsport manufacturing facility. West Pharmaceutical Services, Inc. is a global leader in innovative solutions for injectable drug administration. 

Plans for this expansion, which will be a 3-story expansion occupying 37,000 sq.ft. of operations space, were first announced in 2021 as a significant commitment from West to continue investing in its Pennsylvania manufacturing sites, located in Williamsport and Jersey Shore. This Williamsport expansion will enable the site to produce compounded rubber product that will be further processed at West’s Jersey Shore site into critical rubber components used globally in the containment and delivery of life-saving and life-changing injectable medicines, including COVID-19 vaccines and boosters.

The compounded rubber product is currently produced at West sites in Florida and North Carolina. Adding additional production capability in Williamsport will enhance risk mitigation for our customers, provide more efficient movement of product to our Jersey Shore site, and importantly, create many family-sustaining jobs in the Lycoming County region.
