Nypro has officially opened the doors of its recently expanded Gurnee, Ill. location after having a ribbon cutting ceremony that included Mayor Kristina Kovarik and other company officials.
The facility has almost doubled in size with the new expansion and is bringing 60 new jobs to the local area. The expansion also enhances specialized capabilities that help support diagnostic, medical device, pharmaceutical and consumer health market demands in the U.S.
“With this development, Nypro has renewed its commitment to community investment, involvement and support, and also to bringing to market new, cutting-edge solutions for the design and assembly of medical and pharmaceutical applications,” Chuck Henry, VP of operations at Nypro Healthcare, said. “We look forward to applying our expanded capabilities here to address the latest challenges of our customers in the greater Chicago and Tri-State area.
Nypro added 85,000 sq. ft to its original Gurnee, Ill. facility, bringing its size to 170,000 total sq. ft. This includes a 30,000 sq. ft Class 8 clean room and 45 injection molding machines.
“In addition to these world-class design and manufacturing services, Nypro’s expanded mission also supports the company’s high standards in volunteerism and social and environmental responsibility,” said Henry.
Nypro currently has 23 facilities in 11 companies and employs 20,000 people worldwide.
“The Village of Gurnee is extremely proud to have Nypro thriving and expanding in our community,” Kovarik said. “Nypro’s presence provides good jobs to our area residents, supports the local economy and produces valuable material for the healthcare industry.”
