Zomedica a veterinary health company offering diagnostic and therapeutic products for companion animals, is expanding its manufacturing and distribution facility in Roswell Georgia, which will significantly increase capacity for production and distribution of its products.
"Our PulseVet and TRUFORMA product sales are growing, and we are adding Revo2 and VetGuardian products to the mix. To fulfill customer demand for our expanding portfolio of products with sufficient production and efficient distribution we are committed to expanding our manufacturing capacity and capabilities," said Larry Heaton, Zomedica's Chief Executive Officer. "That is reflected in the new Zomedica Global Manufacturing & Distribution Center."
The ongoing construction of the new 12,400 sq. ft. Zomedica facility, which is part of a 61,500 sq. ft. building, will strengthen Zomedica's manufacturing and distribution capabilities, enabling it to meet growing commercial global demand and support future growth. The center, located a few miles from the existing PulseVet facility, will be the location of all Zomedica's manufacturing and distribution activities including the transition of the PulseVet, Revo2 and TRUFORMA operations.
"We're excited to strengthen our operations with this new facility, which will more than double our current operations to further improve our manufacturing footprint." said Tony Blair, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer. "We've already had great success with our current high-quality manufacturing site and the experienced workforce already operating there - this new center will leverage and improve that existing expertise to increase capacity and streamline global distribution for our current and future portfolio of products."
Zomedica took possession of the site at 4000 Northfield Way, Roswell, GA 30076 on April 1, 2022 and is expecting construction to be completed in August of this year.
