    Posted on 08/12/2019
    On Monday, August 12, the Pleasant Prairie Plan Commission considered and approved preliminary site and operational plans for Nexus Pharmaceuticals Inc. The request was made by Karl Music, agent with IPS, on behalf of Nexus Pharmaceuticals, Inc., for site grading, underground utilities, and footing and foundation for a proposed pharmaceutical manufacturing facility to be located at the northwest quadrant of County Highway Q and 128th Avenue in Prairie Highlands Corporate Park.

    Nexus Pharmaceuticals plans to construct a 100,000 square foot manufacturing facility at this location. Nexus Pharmaceuticals specializes in developing innovative processes to manufacture specialty and generic injectable drugs. The facility will support the production and supply of injectable drugs in an array of therapeutic areas including anesthesia, oncology, cardiovascular, and neurology. The company headquarters are located in Lincolnshire, IL, and Nexus is expanding its business with this manufacturing facility.

    This multi-phase, multi-year project is expected to be completed in ten years. Mass grading, underground utilities, and footing and foundation is scheduled to begin in September of 2019. Phase one construction is expected to be completed in 2021. Commercial production is expected to commence in 2022. As part of the Nexus development commitment, approximately $25 million will be added in the new tax increment value.

    Phase one will consist of constructing an $85 million three-story manufacturing facility with cutting-edge technology including an advanced isolator system for maximum product protection and sterility; reducing the risk of contamination. The facility will also include multiple lyophilization (freeze-drying) machines to support production of Nexus’ current portfolio and robust pipeline of generic and specialty injectable drugs. The facility will create 77 new jobs in fields of high-tech manufacturing, analytical testing, quality control and supply chain management by 2022.
