Australian Pharmaceutical Manufacturers (APM) opened expanded operations in Keysborough, allowing the company to increase exports and create 44 new local jobs.

With support from the Victorian Government, the $6.9 million upgrade will allow APM, which offers contract manufacturing and packaging services for products including vitamin and mineral supplements, to take on more work from existing clients and increase its reach across Asia.

This investment is a further boost to Victoria’s manufacturing industry, which contributes more than $30 billion to the economy and employs more than 270,000 people.

Victoria is home to one of the world’s highest-ranked life science hubs. The state’s global reputation for clean, safe and high-quality products is responsible for growing international demand, especially across Asia.

APM is the latest company to invest in Victoria’s medical technologies and pharmaceuticals sector, following recent significant investments by Praxis, CSL, Nutribiotech and Aspen Australia.
