Missouri approved $6.8 million in tax incentives Tuesday for St. Louis-based Express Scripts to expand.
The pharmaceutical benefits company is set to add 1,500 jobs, and plans to spend the next year constructing a 220,000 square foot building in North St. Louis County.
“Incentives are an option that are on the table for businesses," Express Scripts spokesperson Brian Henry said. "And we evaluate those as we consider our expansion. So for us, incentives are a way for us to drive the business and continue to drive what we do for business and clients.”
