FLINT, Mich. — The country’s largest privately owned specialty pharmacy provider recently got a visit from the U.S. secretary of labor.
Diplomat Specialty Pharmacy announced last week that labor secretary Hilda Solis toured the company’s new headquarters at a former General Motors building in Flint, Mich.
“This is testimony of what people can do when they pull together,” Solis said, referring to Diplomat’s use of the building. “Flint, Mich., is on the map again.”
She also congratulated Diplomat president and CEO Phil Hagerman.
“This facility has been a game changer for us and signifies Diplomat’s continued national growth,” Hagerman said. “Diplomat was picked for this important visit as a unique example of how entrepreneurial business can work together with federal, state and local government to accelerate their growth. We’ve hired 100 employees so far this year and are on track to hire another 150 before year end.”
