ST. LOUIS — The pharmacy benefits manager Express Scripts is opening its new Technology and Innovation Center in St. Louis County, a center that is expected to add hundreds of jobs.
The opening is scheduled for Thursday morning. Gov. Jay Nixon, Sen. Kit Bond and other political and civic leaders are expected to attend.
Bond's office says that in addition to hundreds of new workers, the center will house a pharmacy automation center capable of dispensing 500,000 pills per hour.
Express Scripts already employs about 4,000 people at its corporate office in St. Louis County.
