Pharmavite, LLC, makers of Nature Made vitamins, is excited to celebrate 10 years of production and being a community leader in Opelika, Alabama. It invites all to come out and join in celebrating this exciting milestone.
In January 2013, Pharmavite opened a 300,000-square-foot production facility, with a focus on gummy vitamins in addition to tablets and soft gels. This opening brought the vitamin, mineral and supplement (VMS) industry to Alabama for the first time in state history.
The opening also immediately created hundreds of jobs, with 239 immediate new employees on the day of opening. That number has since more than doubled, with 566 Alabamians and neighboring Georgians now currently employed at the facility.
Pharmavite also continues to invest in the area, with a nearly $8 million expansion in 2021.
“We are deeply proud to be a part of the community in Opelika for the last 10 years and would like to thank all of our employees for the important work they do in manufacturing vitamins for consumers across America,” said Solanda Prather, director of Plant Operations for Pharmavite. “We look forward to many more years to come in Opelika, which has lived up to its reputation as a place of hard-working, caring and skilled people who get the job done.”
Pharmavite has also remained an active member of the Opelika and Auburn communities. Employees have participated in numerous charity events over the past decade, helping with the East Alabama Food Bank, Feed the Children, Lee County Humane Society, Relay for Life, Miracle League and many more.
