The biotech company's planned 130,000-square-foot plant in Ann Arbor, MI, will create 160 jobs by 2023.

Sartorius, an international partner of life science research and the biopharmaceutical industry, is expanding its presence in Michigan. The company will open a new 130,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art plant in Ann Arbor, MI, in late 2023.

Sartorius will have an anchoring presence in the Tech Loop at the Ann Arbor Research Park and add a flagship site in North America. To this end, the company has purchased over 15 acres of land, which provides sufficient space for further expansion. The project is expected to create 160 jobs over three years. These jobs will include positions in product development, operations, and other support functions.
