Amapharm LLC Celebrates Grand Opening of First U.S. Facility in Northeastern PA


Drums, Luzerne County, PA - Amapharm LLC, a leading global nutraceutical manufacturer, proudly announces the successful ribbon-cutting ceremony for its inaugural U.S. facility. Located in the CAN DO Corporate Center in Drums, Pennsylvania, this milestone marks a significant expansion for the renowned company.

Founded by Wolfgang Marks in 1977, Amapharm has been at the forefront of nutraceutical innovation, introducing groundbreaking products to promote health and wellness worldwide. Their visionary approach led to the creation of the world's first vitamin gummy for children in 1996, followed by the introduction of vitaminized jellybeans, toffees, and fruit bites.

With an unwavering commitment to quality and expertise in the industry, Amapharm has established a remarkable presence, distributing its products in over 75 countries. Seeking to extend its reach to the American market, the company carefully selected the CAN DO Corporate Center in Drums as the site for its U.S. operations.

The CAN DO Corporate Center, renowned for its world-class business park, provided the ideal foundation for Amapharm's expansion. The 43,500-square-foot facility, constructed by CAN DO and JVI LLC, offers state-of-the-art infrastructure and a vibrant business ecosystem. Amapharm's decision to choose Drums as their U.S. base signifies their confidence in the local community and the exceptional facilities offered by the CAN DO Corporate Center.

The ribbon-cutting ceremony was a momentous occasion, attracting local dignitaries, business leaders, and members of the community. Wolfgang Marks, the visionary founder of Amapharm, graced the event and emphasized the company's commitment to excellence and innovation.

Joseph Lettiere, President & CEO of CAN DO, expressed his enthusiasm for Amapharm's presence in the business park. He stated, "We are delighted to welcome an international nutraceutical manufacturer of Amapharm's caliber to the CAN DO Corporate Center. Their decision to choose our community for their U.S. facility is a testament to our outstanding business environment and the opportunities it presents."

Amapharm's selection of the CAN DO Corporate Center adds to the region's growing reputation as a hub for international manufacturing companies. In 2010, Muzo, a leading United Kingdom-based flexible classroom learning and office solutions furniture company, established its manufacturing facilities within the center. Building on their success, Muzo relocated its headquarters to the Valmont Industrial Park in West Hazleton in 2020, further solidifying the region's appeal.

With the completion of the facility, Amapharm is poised to make a lasting impact on the American market. The cutting-edge manufacturing plant will generate between 50 and 100 jobs, providing a significant boost to the local economy and offering valuable employment opportunities to the community.

Amapharm LLC is proud to celebrate the opening of its first U.S. facility in the CAN DO Corporate Center in Drums. This milestone signifies the company's dedication to global expansion, commitment to innovation, and their belief in the local community's potential.
