Lonza expanding operations in Greenwood County
$46 million investment expected to create 30 new jobs

COLUMBIA, S.C. – Lonza, one of the world’s leading suppliers to the pharmaceutical, biotech and specialty ingredients markets, today announced plans to expand operations in Greenwood County. The company is investing $46 million over the next five years and is expected to generate 30 new jobs as a result.

“Lonza is making a significant investment in our operations in Greenwood, further demonstrating our commitment to providing high-quality products and services to our customers worldwide” said Sven Abend, Lonza COO of Specialty Ingredients. “Greenwood County is rich with talented, skilled individuals who will enhance our global and regional footprint, particularly in the area of consumer health and nutrition.”

Headquartered in Basel, Switzerland, Lonza harnesses science and technology to create products that enhance the overall quality of life for patients and consumers around the world. Through its acquisition of Capsugel in July 2017, Lonza now offers products and services from the custom development and manufacturing of active pharmaceutical ingredients to innovative dosage forms.

Lonza’s Greenwood County operations, which are located at 535 North Emerald Road in Greenwood, S.C., produce empty capsules and finished dosage forms for the global biopharma and consumer health and nutrition markets. To expand, the company is adding approximately 50,000 square feet of new manufacturing space, which will enable the firm to produce key nutritional ingredients, among other projects.

“We congratulate our friends at Lonza on today’s expansion announcement adds Dr. Kristin Manske, Chair of the Greenwood Partnership Alliance. “Lonza’s continued growth within Greenwood County speaks to the company’s dedication and commitment to the area and the future of life sciences in South Carolina.”

With construction expected to be completed in the second quarter of 2019, hiring for the new positions will take place starting in mid-2018. Those interested in joining the Lonza team should visit the company’s careers page online.

The Coordinating Council for Economic Development has approved job development credits, as well as a $300,000 Set Aside grant to Greenwood County to assist with the costs of site work and infrastructure improvements.
