Governor Cuomo Announces YFS Pharma to Expand in Western New York
Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced that YFS Pharma, Inc., one of the You First Services Group of Companies, will invest $2.6 million to expand operations in Western New York. The company will construct a new pharmaceutical manufacturing facility, purchase new machinery and equipment and create 28 new high-paying, biotech jobs in the region. The company currently employs 14 full-time employees, and the expansion will create 28 new jobs. Empire State Development will assist the company with $500,000 in Excelsior Job Program tax credits.
“Western New York is rapidly becoming a hub of high-tech manufacturing with businesses choosing to come here and grow and expand in this region,” Governor Cuomo said. “With the addition of 28 new highly skilled jobs at YFS Pharma, we take another step forward to help grow the Buffalo area’s economy – allowing this region to continue to thrive for years to come.”
Established in 2013, You First Services, Inc., a STARTUP-NY company following the concept of innovation to commercialization, works to develop and introduce technologies that have been created in the laboratory setting, but have been unable to obtain the resources necessary to complete the most important step in the process, which is to get finished products into the marketplace. The company strives to explore innovative and unique health solutions in order to enhance and improve lives through research and development. This would significantly help to ease the overall economic burden of health care. The regulatory department team in the company works diligently to meet FDA guidelines and related approvals. The company has shown steady growth in development of multiple technologies in the field of oral health care, sterilization and infection control.
