Thorne Research will begin construction on a new manufacturing facility and corporate office complex in Summerville.
“Given the dramatic impact and planned growth arising from our collaboration with the Mayo Clinic, the U.S. Olympic Committee, the Colorado Hospital Association and others, combined with dramatic increases in new professional customers, particularly medical doctors and our international businesses, our new Summerville facility will meet our need to increase capacity and productivity to meet our anticipated future growth,” Thorne CEO Paul Jacobson said.
The project will cost an estimated $35 million and create 330 jobs.
“The fact that Thorne Research has decided to move its headquarters to Summerville is a real reason to celebrate, and it shows that the Team South Carolina approach to creating a competitive business environment and developing one of the most skilled workforces in the world is working for the state as a whole,” Gov. Nikki Haley said. “We’re excited to welcome Thorne to the South Carolina family and thank its leadership for the commitment that this investment, and the 330 new jobs it will create, shows they have toward the people of our great state.”
