That same year, APi also opened its Shanghai, China operations, which focuses on synthesis, as well as the research and development of pharmaceutical products. In 2014, the company made facility expansions by adding 10,000 square feet in North Augusta and 18,000 square feet in Shanghai. Between the two facilities, the company now employs more than 200 workers. The new expansion is expected to create 100 new jobs.
