To add new powder manufacturing facility at Irvine site

Sigma-Aldrich plans to expand its operations in Scotland with a new powder manufacturing facility at its Irvine site to support its risk management program, and to provide an internal back-up supply for customers.
The new facility will create 24 new jobs and is being supported by a $2.4 million Regional Selective Assistance grant from Scottish Enterprise, the country’s economic development organization.
“The liquid facility investment at Irvine was a significant move for SAFC as part of our strategy to support our key European biopharmaceutical accounts,” said Gilles Cottier, president at SAFC. “We are delighted to expand on that initial investment and look forward to continued success in Scotland and throughout Europe.”
First Minister Alex Salmond said, “This is fantastic news for Scotland, for Ayrshire and for Irvine. This expansion to create a new manufacturing facility by SAFC puts Scotland firmly at the center of this U.S. company’s European operations and is a clear signal to world-leading companies that we are open for business.”
