As CoreRx comes to Largo, Resource One leaves for Sarasota

LARGO — Just as Largo gained a new employer in CoreRx this month, it lost another mid-sized company in Resource One Inc., which manufactures and distributes environmentally friendly cleaning products.

The company announced it will move 15 positions to Sarasota after it qualified for a $50,000 grant based on its plans to add 36 positions there over five years, according to a release from the Economic Development Company of Sarasota County.

Resource One Inc. now has 30 employees evenly divided between locations in Largo and Ocala, company president Duncan Yull said in a release.

He said he expects several key employees to relocate, but the company will need to seek a local workforce when it makes the move early next year.

Yull is working with a commercial real estate broker to investigate potential locations in Sarasota County for the business, which is seeking to upgrade its manufacturing and distribution facilities, the company said.

CoreRx, a Tampa-based pharmaceutical development company, announced plans this month to expand its 19-member workforce by at least 55 and move into a new headquarters in Largo.

The company, which formulates combination drugs for large clients and offers other related services, recently qualified for tax refunds from Florida's Qualified Target Industry program, which rewards businesses that employ high-skill, high-wage workers.

The move is expected by mid 2011, Largo officials said.

The Bradenton Herald contributed to this report.

  2. To catch a poacher: Florida wildlife officers set up undercover gator farm sting

    To catch a ring of poachers who targeted Florida's million-dollar alligator farming industry, state wildlife officers created the ultimate undercover operation.

    To catch a ring of poachers who targeted Florida's million-dollar alligator farming industry, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission set up an undercover operation. They created their own alligator farm, complete with plenty of real, live alligators, watched over by real, live undercover wildlife officers. It also had hidden video cameras to record everything that happened. That was two years ago, and on Wednesday wildlife officers announced that they arrested nine people on  44 felony charges alleging they broke wildlife laws governing alligator harvesting, transporting eggs and hatchlings across state lines, dealing in stolen property, falsifying records, racketeering and conspiracy. The wildlife commission released these photos of alligators, eggs and hatchlings taken during the undercover operation. [Courtesy of Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission]
  3. CBO analysis: 23 million would lose health coverage under House-passed bill

    WASHINGTON — The Republican health care bill that passed the House earlier this month would nearly double the number of Americans without health insurance over the next decade, according to a new analysis by the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office.

    Demonstrators protests the passage of a House Republican health care bill, outside the the Capitol in Washington, on May 4. The House took the unusual step of voting on the American Health Care Act before the Congressional Budget Office could assess it. That analysis was released Thursday and it showed the bill would cause 23 million fewer people to have health insurance by 2026. Many additional consumers would see skimpier health coverage and higher deductibles, the budget office projected.
