GURNEE, ILL. – Sept. 15, 2017 – Nypro, a Jabil Company (NYSE: JBL), officially opened the doors to its newly expanded Gurnee, Ill. site yesterday following a ribbon-cutting ceremony attended by Mayor Kristina Kovarik and company officials. The expansion nearly doubles the size of Nypro’s previous facility, and brings up to 60 new jobs to the local economy. The expanded facility enhances Nypro’s highly-specialized capabilities for supporting the demands of the diagnostic, medical device, pharmaceutical and consumer health markets in Illinois, the U.S. and beyond.
“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,” said Chuck Henry, vice president of Operations at Nypro Healthcare. “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.”
The expansion adds 85,000 square feet to the original site to total more than 170,000 total square feet of advanced, medically-purposed manufacturing resources supported by Nypro’s digital supply chain solutions. The facility encompasses a 30,000 square foot Class 8 clean room and 45 injection molding machines; and through collaboration with Radius – another company in the Jabil family – it now offers the region industry-leading innovation for product development and design services.
“The Village of Gurnee is extremely proud to have Nypro thriving and expanding in our community," said Kristina Kovarik, mayor of the Village of Gurnee. “Nypro’s presence provides good jobs to our area residents, supports the local economy and produces valuable material for the health care industry.”
“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,” added Nypro’s Henry.
