THe ONe THAT GOT AwAy

The principals behind start-up company Apixir Pharma Sciences have decided against opening a laboratory at Premier office & Technology in High Point, after publicly exploring the possibility and obtaining a pledge of $35,000 in incentives from the city council. loren Hill, president of High Point economic Development corp., said in a July 23 release that the principals have decided not to go forward with plans to form the company, and will not open facilities in High Point or form a company at any other location at this time. The three partners, who respectively live in Guilford county, New Jersey and california, had considered opening a laboratory to research, develop and manufacture active pharmaceutical ingredients and drug components for eventual product development.

In early June, the principals had announced plans to create 25 jobs paying between $40,000 and $50,000 and to add $2 million to the tax base in the first three years’ of their company’s existence.
