Headquartered in Nashville, August Bioservices will invest $64.7 million and create 180 jobs over the next five years.

The first phase of the project, which will be completed in late 2021, will involve the targeted expansion of August Bioservices’ existing Nashville facility, adding high-value technologies such as lyophilization and terminal sterilization to its existing cGMP fill and finish manufacturing capabilities.

The second phase of the project will see August Bioservices construct a new, state-of-the-art, drug development and manufacturing facility that will feature multiple high-speed production lines capable of delivering commercial scale throughput across a wide array of sterile injectables containers, including vials, IV bags and prefilled syringes.

August Bioservices is a contract development and manufacturing organization (CDMO) providing drug discovery, drug development and drug manufacturing services in support of the global pharmaceutical industry. The company is expanding its capabilities to become a preferred, specialized, one-stop-shop CDMO for clinical and commercial injectable therapies.

Since 2015, TNECD has supported nearly 80 economic development projects in Davidson County, resulting in more than 23,000 job commitments and $2.2 billion in capital investment. â–
