Founded in 1986, Express Scripts has more than 80 sites nationwide, he said.
“We make the use of prescription drugs safer and more affordable,” Henry said.
Express Scripts’ Fairfield location, which it owns, and its location at 8990 Duke Blvd. in Deerfield Twp., which it leases, are operating at about 50 percent capacity, he said, “therefore, we decided to consolidate the work that is done in both locations under one roof.”
Express Scripts has been at its Fairfield location since 1998 and its Deerfield Twp. location since 1997, Henry said.
News of the workforce growth was welcome by Fairfield officials.
“Express Scripts has been one of the largest employers in Fairfield for many years,” said Greg Kathman, the city’s development director. “We’re pleased that, after thorough review, company leadership has decided to reinvest and expand its operations here in our city.”
