LONDONDERRY — Cornerstone Construction Company of Manchester is partnering with FoodState Nutrients (formerly BioSan Laboratories), maker of the MegaFood line of dietary supplements, to expand its New Hampshire manufacturing and warehouse facilities.

Working with Stibler Associates of Manchester, Cornerstone was hired to provide an analysis of FoodState’s space requirements and assess whether the company should build, buy, or expand its current locations. Cornerstone subsequently was awarded a design-build contract to renovate and build-out a facility at 11 Delta Drive in Londonderry.

FoodState is relocating its current dry manufacturing facility from a Derry location to 11 Delta Drive. Approximately 15,000 square feet of the Delta Drive building was already being used by FoodState as a distribution center and warehouse. Renovation of the building’s remaining 25,000 square feet will accommodate the increased production capacity.

Completion of the work is expected by early fall.

METHUEN — Injured Workers P

harmacy (IWP) announces its partnership with Kids’ Chance of America.

Perhaps the largest, yet most important burden children could face is funding their own education. Although it is difficult to afford higher education in general, the children of injured workers are faced with additional stress. Not only are they concerned with locating financial resources to pay for their education, they are also coping with the overwhelming repercussions of a parent’s injury.

Kids’ Chance seeks to lessen this burden by providing scholarships to deserving individuals nationwide. Kids’ Chance takes patient advocacy one step further by caring for the children of injured

workers and IWP is proud to be affiliated with such an inspiring organization.
