South Korea-Based Nutribiotech USA Expands Operations in Garland, Texas

10/20/2017
Nutribiotech USA, a South Korea-based nutritional supplement manufacturer, will invest more than $100 million in their current R&D and production facilities in Garland, Texas.

The company will grow its North American operations footprint from an existing 60,000 square foot facility to more than 685,000 square feet of space over the next five years. A major component of this expansion will include the renovation of 375,000 square feet of the former Raytheon facilities and construction of a new 250,000 square foot facility immediately adjacent to their current site.

According to Garland Economic Development Partnership, in growing the project site from 4.5 acres to nearly 35 acres, Nutribiotech USA purchased a 30-acre portion of the former 110-acre Raytheon campus near the intersection of Jupiter and Miller Roads.

Langford Property Company is constructing 800,000 square feet of new Class A industrial space on a 41-acre portion of that same former campus. Southeastern Freight Lines and Ricky Rockets have committed to develop the remaining 39 acres of the former Raytheon holdings.

In 2002, Nutribiotech USA’s parent company was founded in South Korea and it has been rapidly expanding worldwide ever since. Currently, they maintain and operate facilities in Australia, China, South Korea and most recently launched operations in Garland. In 2016, Nutribiotech became a publicly-traded company in South Korea.

“We have been growing very rapidly and Garland has been a critical part of our success. As we look to the future, we are excited to be a valued and dynamic part of this region’s economic engine.” said BJ Lee, President of Nutribiotech USA.

As part of this expansion project, over 1,600 new jobs will be created in multiple phases of the project, according to Garland Economic Development Partnership. “Food is one of our target industries and Nutribiotech has been a great addition in that regard. Further, this major expansion syncs perfectly with our larger corporate expansion strategy” said David Gwin, Garland’s Director of Economic Development.
