Thermo Fisher Scientific celebrated the opening of its new single-use technology manufacturing site in Ogden, Utah. The state-of-the-art facility creates additional capacity to produce the high-quality technology and materials needed for the development of new vaccines and breakthrough therapies. The $44 million facility is part of Thermo Fisher’s $650 million multi-year investment, announced last year, to help ensure flexible, scalable and reliable bioprocessing production capacity exists for critical materials used in developing new and existing biologics and vaccines, including for COVID-19.

“The Ogden facility further strengthens our global manufacturing network, which has been growing to meet increasing demand for single-use consumables and critical raw materials,” said Mitch Kennedy, president, single-use technologies, Thermo Fisher Scientific. “This new facility expands our presence in Utah and locating here gives us the ability to work closely with our Logan site, providing access to a talented workforce that is ideal for manufacturing the highly complex and customized solutions we provide our customers.

“We’re pleased to welcome a new Thermo Fisher Scientific facility to Ogden,” Governor Spencer Cox said. “This facility, along with campuses in Logan and South Jordan, will bring more than 400 new jobs and expand the company’s employee base to 2,000 statewide. We are grateful to have Thermo Fisher Scientific as part of Utah’s growing biotech economy.”
