Nutramax to Move Operations to South Carolina

Operations being to moved to South Carolina for Nutramax.

Nutramax Laboratories Inc. and Nutramax Manufacturing Inc. have plans to locate new operations in Lancaster, S.C.

The move will allow the nutraceutical developer to increase its production capacity for new and existing products in its veterinary and consumer divisions. Nutramax will invest about $12.5 million in acquiring, updating and expanding existing facilities.

The move will also create more than 200 new jobs over the next five years, according to Gov. Mark Sanford, who made the announcement May 11, 2010, with the South Carolina Department of Commerce and the Lancaster County Economic Development Corp. Nutramax expects to begin operations this fall and hopes to start hiring within the next 90 days.

“Our decision to relocate and expand our animal health, and eventually our consumer health businesses in South Carolina is the culmination of a three-year search,” said Todd Henderson, DVM, president of the companies. “The support of Governor Sanford, the South Carolina Department of Commerce, Lancaster County and City of Lancaster were critical to our decision. We look forward to final approval of applications and agreements so that we can proceed with this important project.

“We feel that South Carolina and Lancaster County provide the perfect setting for our businesses to grow, and our employees and their families to live and work in an area with safe, affordable housing, plentiful recreational opportunities and quality of life.”

The family-owned and operated business is currently based in Edgewood, Md.
