Pharma Company Investing $88M in Peachtree Expansion

Gerresheimer, a German-based pharma and life science manufacturer, will invest more than $88 million in expanding its manufacturing operations in Peachtree City, creating over 200 new jobs for Fayette County. 

Gerresheimer offers a portfolio of pharmaceutical containment solutions, drug delivery systems, and medical devices as well as solutions for the health and cosmetics industry. Gerresheimer currently supports more than 260 jobs in Peachtree City. The existing Gerresheimer manufacturing facility is already in the midst of an expansion, where it will support an additional 180 jobs with operations beginning in April 2024.

Gerresheimer’s new facility will be located in the Southpark International Industrial Park in Peachtree City, producing medical devices, particularly autoinjectors, to administer injectable drugs. Operations are expected to begin in fall 2024.

Georgia is outpacing the nation in life sciences employment, with a 20 percent growth rate since 2015. The industry supports more than 78,000 jobs statewide, and at least 4,000 life science organizations operate in Georgia.
