A pharmaceutical company that moved its corporate headquarters to Jupiter two years ago is spending about $4 million to buy and refurbish a U.S. 1 office building for expansion.
Charleston Laboratories Inc., a privately owned company that started in 2007, is renovating the four-story office building at 1150 South U.S. 1., about a mile south of Indiantown Road.
The company plans to move its headquarters into the building and hire about two dozen executive and management employees when they open.
Charleston Laboratories, Inc. is a specialty pharmaceutical company focused on research and development pain management products to prevent the side effects such as vomiting and nausea related to opioid analgesics and other products.
The company has been renting space in an office building across from the U-Tiki restaurant on A1A in Jupiter.
The company received a Qualified Target Industry Tax Refund of $140,000 from Florida and an additional $35,000 in incentives from Jupiter.
