Mead Johnson Nutrition Company, a global leader in pediatric nutrition, has formally opened the doors to its new production and research campus in Tuas, Singapore. This investment represents the single largest capital project in the company’s more than 100-year history. It has added approximately 180 new production and science positions, bringing the company’s employment total in Singapore to approximately 250, including the regional headquarters that opened two years ago.

James M Cornelius, Chairman of Mead Johnson, says that the significant investment “is an acknowledgement of the double-digit growth in demand for the company’s products in Asia over the past decade. More importantly, the investment reflects the strong prospects for future growth and expansion in this region.”

The Tuas campus includes a state-of-the-art manufacturing plant that will supply key ingredients and products to a number of strategic, fast-growing markets in Asia. It also features the newest addition to the global network of the Mead Johnson Pediatric Nutrition Institute. The technology and learning centre will add to the company’s ability to advance pediatric nutrition science and product innovation. James M. Cornelius adds: “Breakthroughs made here will help improve existing products and develop new ones to support the healthy growth and development of infants and children in Singapore, Asia and around the world.”

The new Mead Johnson facility will benefit from the combination of Singapore’s central location, robust free-market economy, strong international trade, outstanding infrastructure, and commitment to research and education.
