Pharma Engineering is in the final stages of the site selection process for its engineering division, with the likely plan to take over the former General Electric plant in Bloomington, Illinois. Built in the early 1950’s, the facility has been well-maintained and is suitable for use similar to its former purposes of administration, engineering, prototyping, manufacturing and assembly. The facility has approximately 400,000 square feet of which 50,000 is administrative support space.
Pharm Engineering’s engineering division would be the corporate headquarters for both the Pharma division and the Engineering division. As such, administrative, engineering, IT, and various support staff would be hired. The facility can accommodate 500 or more employees during a single work shift. GE once had more than 1500 employees at this site when GE ran three shifts of manufacturing of electronic components.
Pharma Engineering will develop the US Patent of James Lundeen, Sr. for control of indoor barometric pressure to alleviate pain associated with low barometric atmospheric conditions and will also develop early warning systems for severe weather conditions.
