Last week, Eli Lilly and Company announced that it would bring a new manufacturing facility to the town of Alzey in southwestern Germany. The $2.5 billion project will help the company meet increased demand while supporting its growing parenteral product and device manufacturing network worldwide. Set to begin production in 2027, the Alzey site will begin construction in 2024, creating 1,900 jobs over the course of buildout. This move represents Eli Lilly’s sixth location in Europe. Lilly said it chose Germany for its life sciences talent pool, which will help the company fill 1,000 new jobs as it looks for skilled engineers, operators and scientists. In addition, it was announced that the company will also invest $100 million in venture capital funds to support new innovation and collaboration within Germany’s burgeoning biotech ecosystem.

The project is expected to be complete in 2024, increasing capacity by 80% at the Port of Callao, Peru’s main seaport. “Our investment in these electric cranes is a reflection of our unwavering dedication to environmental stewardship.

Nucor Steel is investing $280 million to expand production lines at its Tuscaloosa, Alabama, site and construct a new rolling mill. This expansion allows the company to domestically produce thinner and stronger steel plates, which had not previously been produced in the U.S. “The investment at the rolling mill at Tuscaloosa is important to keep our mill competitive in the global steel industry and open up new market opportunities for our team,” said Nucor Steel Tuscaloosa Vice President and General Manager Brian Phillippi. Construction is set to begin by the end of this year, with the mill becoming operational mid-2027. As part of the investment deal, Nucor received a tax abatement package for up to 10 years from the Tuscaloosa County Economic Development Authority, and will use tax savings to purchase equipment and building materials for the project.
