Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee, Department of Economic and Community Development Commissioner Bob Rolfe and Thermo Fisher Scientific officials announced today that the Waltham, Mass.-based life sciences company will establish a new manufacturing facility in Wilson County, that will lead to 1,400 new jobs.
To date, Thermo Fisher 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.
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.
