WINTER HAVEN, Florida–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Assure Infusions, Inc., a new company that launched earlier this year to produce intravenous fluid products, is building a manufacturing facility in Bartow, Florida. The 60,000 square foot facility – slated to open in 2023 – will be fully automated with advanced robotics to manufacture IV fluids that are in high demand in the US healthcare system.
“We are excited to share our plans to build a state-of-the-art pharmaceutical manufacturing facility in Central Florida,” said Alex Lucio, CEO of Assure Infusions. “Having readily available IV fluids is essential for quality healthcare, but unfortunately there is often a shortage of these products in the United States due to a lack of domestic manufacturing, supply chain issues and production limitations of current manufacturers.”
Assure Infusions’ new facility will showcase the company as an innovative and highly advanced new player in the pharmaceutical manufacturing industry. The facility will create more than 100 well-paying jobs and provide high-quality intravenous fluids to hospitals and healthcare facilities in Florida and beyond.
“In addition to creating more than 100 new high-skilled, high-paying jobs in Polk County, Assure Infusions will help ensure hospitals and healthcare facilities can operate without disruption by providing a steady and stable supply of intravenous fluid products. “Lucio said.
Before launching Assure Infusions in February, Lucio was the founder and CEO of 3B Medical, a central Florida medical device manufacturer that makes products for the treatment of sleep-disordered breathing and oxygen therapy. Lucio built 3B Medical into one of Florida’s fastest growing companies before retiring after acquisition by ReactHealth.
