Chattanooga’s Chattem Chemicals to expand, add 50 jobs in St. Elmo

In its biggest expansion since the company was spun off from Chattem Inc., nearly two decades ago, Chattem Chemicals will build a fifth building on its St. Elmo campus this summer to boost production of the active pharmaceutical ingredients it makes for both consumer and industrial markets.

Chattem Chemicals, a division of Sun Pharma, announced Tuesday that it will invest $6 million and add 25 employees to the 80-employee Chattanooga operation in the next year. In the next several years, the company plans to again expand with another $10 million to $15 million addition that will add another 25 jobs.
