MCPHERSON, Kan. (AP) — A major pharmaceutical company says it will invest $120 million in improvements at its McPherson plant over the next five years, likely resulting in 150 new jobs. Illinois-based Hospira Incorporated announced the project Wednesday. Hospira makes injectable drugs and infusion technologies. The Kansas plant opened in 1977 and currently has about 1,400 employees who produce medications in glass vials, cartridges, syringes and other delivery systems. The plan for the McPherson facility includes additional production lines, automated visual inspection systems and expanded capacity.
