US health and wellness company Pharmavite has begun construction on a new facility in New Albany, Ohio, to increase production capacity and meet demand.
The new 225,000ft² manufacturing facility will help the company to boost its national vitamin and supplement brands portfolio.
The company’s brands include Nature Made, MegaFood, EQUELLE, Nature Made Wellblends, Nurish by Nature Made, and Uqora.
Pharmavite has invested more than $200m into the initial stages of construction, covering the plant, machinery and tools.
This facility will be Pharmavite’s fourth manufacturing site and will help in generating 225 new jobs in the Columbus region.
It also represents its second investment outside of the company’s home state of Southern California.
