Four billion bottles of eye care products have rolled off the line at the Bausch + Lomb, Greenville Solutions Plant.
With that announcement Tuesday, also came news from Valeant Pharmaceuticals of an expansion at the Upstate plant and distribution center.
Over the next five years, 150-200 jobs will be added, as well as a $150 million dollar investment.
Valeant Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Michael Pearson points to the willing workforce as one of the main reasons they’ve stayed and grown.
The Greenville Chamber of Commerce says expansions like this are so important because about 80 percent of a community’s growth comes from companies that are already here.
