  2. AmbioPharm, Inc. (API), a full-service peptide and biopharmaceutical manufacturing company, is expanding its existing Aiken County operations. The expansion is projected to bring $18 million of new capital investment and lead to the creation of 100 jobs over the next five years. Roseburg Forest Products, a privately-owned, integrated forest products company based in the Pacific Northwest, is locating a new engineered wood products plant in Chester County. The development is projected to lead to the creation of more than 145 new jobs.

  3. Two new restaurants are planned for the former Columbia Fire Department headquarters building at the corner of Senate and Park streets in The Vista. The building, being renovated by a Virginia Beach-based real estate investment firm, will house the Kao Thai Cuisine restaurant, a sister restaurant to the Tamarind restaurant in Asheville. A second undisclosed restaurant is slated for the historic eight-bay fire station with its distinctive training tower. Developer Christopher Mein of Wheeler Real Estate Investment Trust said the restaurant will be operated by “a seasoned restaurant group with ties to Columbia and Charleston.” The second restaurant operator is also contemplating turning the second story of the building into a large event space, he said. And there is still room on the 13,000-square-foot first floor for a third retail tenant. http://www.thestate.com/news/local/article161442148.html
