Pharmavite to Join Health & Life Science Cluster

Pharmavite LLC, makers of Nature Made® vitamins and a pioneer in the health and wellness industry, has announced plans to expand into New Albany, investing more than $200 million and creating 225 new jobs in the city’s fast-growing health and life sciences cluster. The city and region’s rapid emergence as a “leading national hub for science, innovation and technology companies” influenced the decision, noted Jeff Boutelle, Pharmavite CEO. The company will build a new 200,000- to 250,000-square-foot facility in the New Albany International Business Park.

The new facility, located at 13312 Jug Street Road NW, will help the company add production capacity and enhance its Midwest and East Coast market service. Production is expected to start by the end of 2024. The new facility will be the California-based company’s fourth manufacturing facility and the second investment outside its home state. “As a born and raised Ohioan, I look forward to leading Pharmavite into this new era in which we will develop new reach and capabilities while striving to become an important part of the Columbus and New Albany communities,” said Jeff Boutelle, CEO of Pharmavite.

Founded in 1971, Pharmavite’s last expansion took place in 2013 with a facility in Alabama which has grown to full capacity. The new facility will primarily produce products for its Nature Made & MegaFood brands. Nature Made is the leading national vitamin and supplement broadline brand, with 50 years of delivering high quality products that are backed by science and ranked as the #1 Pharmacist Recommended vitamin and supplement brand
