The firm's legal name has since changed to Cambrex Charles City, Inc.
The firm plans to import phenylacetone to manufacture amphetamine for distribution to its customers.
Objections and a request for hearing were timely filed and then withdrawn.

DEA has investigated Salsbury Chemicals, Inc. (now Cambrex Charles City, Inc.) to ensure that the company's continued registration is consistent with the public interest. This investigation included inspection and testing of the company's physical security system, verification of the company's compliance with state and local laws, and a review of the company's background and history. Therefore, pursuant to section 1008(a) of the Controlled Substances Import and Export Act and in accordance with title 21, Code of Federal Regulations, section 1301.34, the above firm is granted registration as an importer of the basic class of controlled substance listed.Start Signature
