(WXYZ) — In tonight's 7 UpFront report we're taking a look at Pfizer's plans for a new facility in Michigan.

"It's a critical facility for us," Calitri says. "We'll be making a number of our key, in-line products there. The first one is a pain medication for surgical patients, critical medication, we sell it in over 27 countries. It's an important medication for us. But there's other in-line products that will follow shortly thereafter, products for inflammation, infection, and other important therapeutic areas."
