Ther­mo Fish­er opens site in Utah as part of sin­gle-use spend­ing spree

In Sep­tem­ber 2021, Ther­mo Fish­er Sci­en­tif­ic an­nounced plans to ex­pand its sin­gle-use man­u­fac­tur­ing foot­print across the globe us­ing $650 mil­lion, start­ing with a new site in Nashville that would more than dou­ble its ca­pac­i­ty.

On Wednes­day, the com­pa­ny cel­e­brat­ed the open­ing of a $44 mil­lion fa­cil­i­ty in Og­den, Utah, that will man­u­fac­ture high­ly cus­tomiz­able bio­process con­tain­er sys­tems.

Known as BPCs, they’re used to trans­port and store liq­uids that are crit­i­cal parts of bi­o­log­ics, vac­cines and cell and gene ther­a­pies. The site will be 55,000-square-feet and has hired 300 em­ploy­ees. An­oth­er 450 peo­ple in the greater-Salt Lake City area could be hired for roles in safe­ty, qual­i­ty, man­u­fac­tur­ing, en­gi­neer­ing and hu­man re­sources.
