Pharmaceutical Services Center '18
Pitt County’s efforts to prepare a skilled workforce needed to attract new pharmaceutical companies and help existing ones grow took a giant leap forward this week with the opening of the Pitt Community College Pharmaceutical Services Center. Located in the county’s Technology Enterprise Center in Greenville, the facility provides a simulated manufacturing environment to train workers in the production of oral solid dose medications. It is the product of a partnership between PCC, the Golden LEAF Foundation, N.C. Biotech Center, Pitt County Committee of 100, N.C. East Alliance, Pitt County Economic Development Commission and East Carolina University. Following the event, PCC President G. Dennis Massey, ECU Provost Ron Mitchelson, the N.C. Biotech Center Vice President Mark Phillips, PCC Vice President of Academic Affairs Tom Gould and PCC instructor Mike Renn, left to right, spoke with members of the media and those in attendance about the center’s importance to economic development.
