Flagler’s business climate, labor force and tax rate also factored in Beutlich Pharmaceuticals decision. The company plans to be up and running in January.
Palm Coast, FL – October 16, 2014 – Beutlich Pharmaceuticals, LLC has purchased a 20,000 square foot office and warehouse facility on U.S. 1 in Bunnell and is relocating from the Midwest to Flagler County.“We are real excited about getting down here where we won’t have to deal with the snow,” said Jack Beutlich, one of the company’s owners. Beutlich already owns a home in Palm Coast.
The company is relocating from Waukegan, Illinois to Flagler County and plans to be up and running in January 2015. “This is the perfect time to us to relocate,” Beutlich CEO Erlene Thomas said. “The move will be carried out in a manner that ensures our operations will not be interrupted and our loyal customers will not be affected.”
