Neogen Expands Lansing, Michigan, Operations

Neogen Corporation, a company that develops and markets comprehensive solutions dedicated to food and animal safety, plans to expand its food safety facility in Lansing, Michigan. The $70 million project is expected to create up to 100 jobs.

The company will construct a 175,000-square-foot, three-story dedicated manufacturing building located on E. Shiawassee Street, adjacent to its other facilities. Neogen will invest in new manufacturing equipment and laboratory equipment for the test and release of products. Construction is slated to begin in September 2022, with completion expected in December 2023, with validation and other progress taking place through 2024.

"Neogen is proud to call Lansing our corporate headquarters, and we are so happy to continue growing with the city that helped build us into the global company that we are today," President and CEO John Adent said. "This year, as we celebrate our 40th year of operations, we also celebrate a number of big steps forward for our company. This expansion, along with the merging of 3M's Food Safety business with our existing operations, will lead Neogen into a new era of growth. I want to thank the City of Lansing and the Greater Lansing area for continuing to support Neogen, and we are excited to continue growing together," he added.

This project will be made possible through close collaboration with the City of Lansing, Lansing Economic Development Corporation, Lansing Economic Area Partnership, the Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC), and the Michigan Strategic Fund (MSF), as the company has applied for incentives, according to company officials.

"Neogen's $70 million investment in Lansing will further Michigan's leadership in the life sciences and agribusiness sectors," Governor Gretchen Whitmer said of the project. "This new manufacturing facility will expand Neogen's footprint in Lansing and create up to 100 new good-paying jobs for Michiganders. Michigan's future is bright because of our hardworking, talented people and our innovative businesses, and investments like today's by Neogen will help us continue moving our state forward. I will work with anyone to keep growing our economy, creating good-paying jobs, and investing in every region of our great state."

Neogen's Animal Safety segment is a leader in the development of genomic solutions along with the manufacturing and distribution of a variety of animal healthcare products, including diagnostics, pharmaceuticals, veterinary instruments, wound care, and disinfectants, as well as rodent and insect control solutions. The company's Food Safety segment markets dehydrated culture media and diagnostic test kits to detect foodborne bacteria, natural toxins, food allergens, drug residues, plant diseases, and sanitation concerns.
