Turbare Manufacturing, a pharmaceutical manufacturer, announced plans for a new facility in Conway. Turbare will utilize a former pharmaceutical production facility at 925 Jeanette Drive and produce drugs on the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s shortage list.
“The list is ever-changing and most are emergency products that contribute to a better quality of life,” said Andria White, company general manager. “We will be able to step in and service those areas and fill in the gaps for those products.”
Turbare plans to invest $11 million between purchase of the property, modernization of the facility and new equipment. Laura Martin, CEO and founder, said the 44,000-square-foot facility would house state-of-the-art, automated equipment that will allow it to produce high-quality products.
Brad Lacy, president and CEO of the Conway Area Chamber of Commerce and Conway Development Corporation, said Turbare’s announcement continues the growth Conway has seen in the job market, eclipsing pre-COVID numbers.
“Tubare’s decision to locate in Conway adds to this momentum,” he said. “Conway has always enjoyed a diverse local economy. Turbare will add to this diversification by bringing pharmaceutical manufacturing back to the market.”
Turbare currently has five employees and plans to hire 50 positions in late spring and early summer, said Martin. White said the company plans to have 100 positions by the end of the year. The average salary is expected to be $50,000. Positions will include executive-level positions, directors, managers, clean-room technicians, and positions in warehousing, shipping, receiving, inspection, quality assurance, quality control, customer service and sales.
Conway Mayor Bart Castleberry said he was happy to add Turbare Manufacturing to Conway’s business community.
“We have a long manufacturing history and have proven a successful location for pharmaceutical manufacturing in the past,” he said. “I am certain Turbare will find our city the perfect home for their business.”
