VWR opens new biochemicals manufacturing site in Ohio, replacing five others


VWR celebrated the official plant opening and a facility tour for city officials and attendees at its new manufacturing site in Solon, Ohio. The 226,000 square foot chemical manufacturing site will replace five of their six locations in the Solon area, helping VWR employees to be more consolidated instead of spread out across the region. VWR hopes this will facilitate collaboration among employees. VWR has been around for 160 years initially supporting the mining and laboratory markets, and has expanded into biopharmaceutical, biotechnology, and industrial markets. They now focus on high purity biochemicals and life science regents. VWR reported sales in excess of $4.3 billion in 2015.
