In May 2020, Phlow received a $354 million, four-year federal contract from the U.S. Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority to create an American supply chain for generic medicines and pharmaceutical ingredients that are now made mostly in China and India that are needed to treat coronavirus.
In Petersburg, Phlow is partnering with nonprofit generic drug-maker Civica Rx and California-based AMPAC Fine Chemicals to produce COVID drugs as part of a federal initiative to create the domestic supply chain for critical pharmaceuticals and ingredients.
