Pharmavite held a ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate the grand opening of the company’s new “Val-W” 229,000 square foot building at 28355 Witherspoon Parkway in the Valencia Commerce Center on Wednesday.
This state-of-the-art facility will consolidate two current Santa Clarita Pharmavite operations into a single location, streamlining their supply chain, logistics and distribution.
The new building will house their Nature Made vitamin and nutritional supplements, raw materials and intermediate bulk, as well as finished goods, when the move is complete in mid-2018.
It complements their packaging operation located just down the street at 28104 Witherspoon Parkway, greatly improving materials access, production time and operational efficiencies.
“This move and our new 15-year lease represent a deep commitment to our employees’ well-being, and to remaining a key employer in the Santa Clarita Valley for the long-term,” said Brett Buatti, VP of Operations.
“This new building provides state-of-the-art technology connectivity and infrastructure, a more efficient working environment, critical safety equipment, and complete amenities for our staff,” Buatti said.
The operation will run four shifts Monday through Saturday and one shift on Sunday, with approximately 175 employees.
