Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. announced plans to establish a manufacturing facility in Nashville dedicated to the production of single-use technologies (SUT) products. This investment is in addition to the previously announced expansion to address unprecedented demand in the bioprocessing market. The facility will be one of the world's SUT manufacturing sites and will more than double the company's SUT manufacturing capacity in support of its biopharma customers. The first phase of construction will be operational by the second quarter of 2022. The Nashville site is part of Thermo Fisher's now more than $650 million capital investment to expand its bioprocessing production capabilities across 11 manufacturing sites in North America, Europe and Asia. Additional capacity will be added in 2021 with the completion of expansion projects in Logan, Utah, Suzhou, China, and a new SUT manufacturing site in Singapore. This additional capacity in the SUT network supports global customers as the company's manufacturing strategy utilizes equivalent processes and procedures to manufacture SUT products of consistent quality, form, fit and function worldwide.
