Recently recognized as a finalist of the 2017 Massachusetts Economic Impact Awards, Avista Pharma has won bronze for the West Region. Avista Pharma was honored to receive this recognition alongside other top-performing companies in the state. Earlier this year, Avista Pharma announced the completion of a $4 million expansion at its Agawam, Massachusetts facility. Business at the facility has grown significantly year-over-year, and additional growth is anticipated in 2018.


The Massachusetts Economic Impact Awards is a prestigious annual event honoring companies across the state for commitment to the long-term growth and success of the Massachusetts economy. Nominees are selected based on outstanding contributions made throughout the year, including job growth, facility expansion, community involvement and other local investments. The winning companies were celebrated at the Impact Awards luncheon on November 21.
