Unilife Medical Solutions relocates manufacturing operations to York County

November 30, 2015

Unilife has built a significant business relationship with sanofi-aventis to support the industrialization of its Unilife pre-filled syringe. Pilot production of the syringe began at the Lewisberry facility last year; full commercial production will occur at the company's new facility in York County. Unilife will also manufacture the Unitract 1mL range of syringes at the facility for use in healthcare facilities and by people with diabetes.

The project was coordinated by the Governor's Action Team, economic development professionals who serve as a single point-of-contact for businesses that are considering locating or expanding in the state.

Pennsylvania is providing the company with a $5.2 million funding package that includes a $500,000 opportunity grant, a $2 million loan from the Pennsylvania Industrial Development Authority, a $2 million grant through either the Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program or the Infrastructure Facilities Improvement Program, $200,000 in job training assistance and $482,000 in job creation tax credits.

Since Governor Rendell took office in 2003, GAT has successfully completed 1,179 projects, resulting in commitments to create 125,521 new jobs and retain 297,425 existing positions. The commonwealth has offered more than $2.2 billion in assistance for these projects, which will leverage more than $16 billion in additional investment.
