he Vermont outpost of a multinational company that makes medical products is considering an expansion of its St. Albans facility, which could add 150 jobs to the local economy.
The St. Albans Messenger says the Vermont Economic Progress Council has given preliminary approval to $4.2 million in cash incentives to Mylan Technologies, Inc., should the company expand in St. Albans.
The company, which makes products that deliver medicine through the skin, has not made a formal statement about its Vermont plans.
Tim Smith of the Franklin County Industrial Development Corp. says that if Mylan were to expand in St. Albans it would boost other city businesses.
Mylan has not filed a final to receive the incentives.
In 2003 Mylan employed 284 people in Vermont and it has since expanded.
