Not only is Pfizer expanding its Kalamazoo operations, the pharmaceutical giant is hiring for more than 200 jobs at its Portage campus.

Production workers, project managers, engineers, skilled tradesmen, quality assurance and quality control professionals and are needed at Pfizer in Portage. The company is looking to fill more than 200 positions, some needing only a high-school diploma. Pfizer site leader Robert Betzig spoke with MLive about the new jobs created with the expansion of the plant and filling other positions as baby-boomers retire.

Yes, there are 200 new budgeted positions for 2018, but if you think of a site our size, 2,300 colleagues, and think of the Baby Boom wave coming through, there are colleagues (company workers) who will be retiring. We're probably talking another 200, that's what we're thinking. ... So 200 new (positions), plus 200 replacements. You're probably really talking about 400.
