The facility will be located at 13312 Jug Street Road NW, pending local approvals and site acquisition. The expansion will help the company add production capacity and enhance its Midwest and East Coast market service. Operations are planned to start by the end of 2024.
"Pharmavite is excited to announce a major expansion into the Columbus Region, which is rapidly emerging as a leading national hub for science, innovation and technology companies," said Jeff Boutelle, CEO of Pharmavite. "As a proud 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."
Pharmavite is an American dietary supplements company that was founded in 1971 in California. The company was acquired by Otsuka Pharmaceutical in 1989. Pharmavite’s "Nature Made" vitamin brand was launched the following year.

Nauseef, president and CEO of JobsOhio. "This investment brings a state-of-the-art facility and 225 new jobs that will support growing demand for Pharmavite's vitamin supplements throughout the Midwest and East Coast."
