Thermo Fisher Scientific Plans Wilson County, Tennessee, Technology Assembly Facility

Life sciences company Thermo Fisher Scientific will establish a new manufacturing facility in Wilson County, Tennessee. The project is expected to create 1,400 new jobs over the next several years.

According to the Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development (TNECD), 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.

“Thermo Fisher’s Nashville site will play a critical role in the company’s effort to support the global pharmaceutical industry’s work in developing life-saving biologics and vaccines to address many diseases. We look forward to being part of the community and enabling the local talent to build meaningful careers through the high-quality jobs that will be created at the site,” said Michel Lagarde, executive vice president, Thermo Fisher Scientific.

Thermo Fisher Scientific is an American provisioner of scientific instrumentation, reagents and consumables, and software services. Based in Waltham, Massachusetts, Thermo Fisher was formed through the merger of Thermo Electron and Fisher Scientific in 2006.

“Tennessee has seen an influx of healthcare and life sciences companies choosing to do business in our state, and this new investment from Thermo Fisher Scientific brings a significant boost to this thriving sector. We welcome Thermo Fisher Scientific to Tennessee and thank them for creating over 1,000 new job opportunities in Lebanon,” noted Louisiana Economic DevelopmentTNECD Commissioner Bob Rolfe.
