Vitamin Firm Plans Expansion at Alabama Plant

A vitamin company is planning to expand its operations in Opelika in a move that’s expected to bring more than 50 new jobs to the eastern Alabama community over three years.

The Opelika City Council this week approved a 10-year tax abatement to Pharmavite for its $21.6 million expansion. The expansion plan also includes new machinery and other equipment.

The Opelika-Auburn News reports that Pharmavite opened its Opelika plant in January 2013, where they now employ 245 people.

Northridge, Calif.-based Pharmavite is one of the nation’s largest producers of vitamins, minerals and dietary supplements.
