AmbioPharm, Inc Expands Its North Augusta, South Carolina, Manufacturing Center

AmbioPharm, Inc., a company that specializes in the manufacturing of peptides and the development of generic drugs, is expanding its existing operations center in North Augusta, South Carolina. The company is investing $18.8 million in the expansion and will create 100 new jobs over the next five years in Aiken County.

To expand its Aiken County operations, APi is planning to construct additional manufacturing suites and a new world headquarters building on the existing 32 acres that APi owns. In total, the new additions will add approximately 40,000 square feet to the company’s existing facility at 1024 Dittman Court, North Augusta, South Carolina. The expansion in North Augusta is anticipated to be completed by the third quarter of 2018.

As an incentive, the Coordinating Council for Economic Development has approved job development credits related to the project. APi started their business in South Carolina in 2007, by establishing its company headquarters and downstream manufacturing operations in a 10,000-square-foot facility in the North Augusta Industrial Park.

“Our expansion is the product of our hard-working, talented team of employees, the trust of our customers in the quality of our product and delivery system and the support we have received from the City of North Augusta, Aiken County and the State of South Carolina. The State truly knows how to work with rapidly growing enterprises,” said AmbioPharm, Inc. Founder/CEO Dr. Chris Bai.

“AmbioPharm’s decision to build its headquarters in South Carolina is another example of how our workforce and business-friendly environment continue to attract companies to our state. This $18 million investment and the 100 new jobs it will create illustrates AmbioPharm’s continued commitment to Aiken County and to South Carolina as a whole, said Governor Nikki Haley.

“Aiken County is happy to congratulate AmbioPharm on its $18 million expansion that will create 100 new jobs in Aiken County. It’s gratifying that Dr. Bai and his team call Aiken County home. Aiken County Council is looking forward to continuing our partnership with them,” said Aiken County Council Chairman Ronnie Young.
