AbbVie is investing $320 million to establish manufacturing operations in Singapore for small molecule and biologics active drug substance. Once completed, the facility will provide manufacturing capacity for compounds in AbbVie's oncology and immunology pipeline to serve global markets. The investment is expected to result in additional headcount of more than 250 new employees. AbbVie anticipates the facility will be fully operational by 2019.
 
AbbVie’s operations in Asia currently include R&D functions in Tokyo, Japan and Shanghai, China, as well as commercial operations throughout the region. AbbVie currently employs 120 personnel in Singapore, supporting commercial operations, global R&D, and general operations.
 
"As Asia's fastest-growing bio-cluster, Singapore is an ideal location to expand our manufacturing network while maintaining rigorous standards of quality and delivery for the patients we serve around the world," said Azita Saleki-Gerhardt, Ph.D., senior vice president, Operations, AbbVie. "Our presence in Singapore will help assure geographic balance and continuity of product supply as well as increased capacity to deliver on our growing biologics and small molecule product pipeline."
