Thermo Fisher Scientific will establish a new manufacturing facility in Wilson County, TN that will create 1,400 new jobs. The Massachusetts-based life sciences company has committed more than $100 million to build a new single-use technology assembly facility, where it will produce bioprocess containers and fluid transfer assemblies that are used globally by biopharma companies to develop and produce therapeutics and vaccines.
“Thermo Fisher’s Nashville site will play a critical role in the company’s effort to support the global pharmaceutical industry’s work in developing life-saving biologics and vaccines to address many diseases,” said Michel Lagarde, executive vice president, Thermo Fisher Scientific. “We look forward to being part of the community and enabling the local talent to build meaningful careers through the high-quality jobs that will be created at the site.”
The project will create about 400 jobs in the near term, ultimately growing to more than 1,400 new jobs in Lebanon over the next several years. The roles will focus on manufacturing, assembling and packaging bioprocess containers in a clean room environment with additional roles in engineering, procurement, quality, warehousing and site leadership.
Thermo Fisher serves global customers in the pharmaceutical and biotech sectors, as well as in hospitals and clinical diagnostic labs, universities, research institutions and government agencies.
