Alcami, a leading provider of fully-integrated custom end-to-end solutions for the pharmaceutical and biologics industries, plans to expand the company’s current operations in North Charleston, South Carolina. The $17M investment is expected to create 30 new jobs in Charleston County.
Operating in North Charleston since 2001, Alcami offers a variety of solutions tailored to small and mid sized pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies.
Located at 4221 Faber Place Drive in North Charleston, Alcami will add approximately 6,000 square feet to the footprint of its facility, substantially augmenting the capacity of its sterile drug product development and manufacturing operations.
The Coordinating Council for Economic Development has approved job development credits related to the project.
“The build-out of our Charleston facility comes at a time of rapid growth for Alcami and represents a long-term commitment to our sterile drug product clients, our talented workforce and the greater Charleston area. Our clients expect the most advanced manufacturing technologies and capabilities, and this expansion will ensure we continue to exceed marketplace expectations by remaining on the forefront of industry needs,” Alcami Site Director Darold Hill said.
“The growth of Alcami Corporation during its 18 years in North Charleston has been truly remarkable. This company is a highly-valued corporate citizen, and with this expansion, it is renewing its steadfast and long-standing commitment to our community,” Charleston County Council Chairman Elliott Summey said.
“We applaud Alcami’s accomplishments in our local economy, building upon their company’s innovation, which is backed by a proven workforce. North Charleston remains ripe for businesses to flourish, and we are always grateful for the benefits our community receives when companies succeed,” said North Charleston Mayor Keith Summey.
“Congratulations to Alcami on announcing their second expansion in Charleston County in the last three years. Assisting local companies in their expansion efforts is a primary focus of our Business Concierge program. Our long-standing relationship with Alcami helped support their decision to grow their global footprint at their North Charleston facility,” Charleston County Economic Development Executive Director Steve Dykes added.
