Chandler Mayor Kevin Hartke, the Arizona Commerce Authority, along with the City of Chandler and community leaders joined Gummi World President Alexander Candelario to celebrate the grand opening of the multi-million-dollar facility, which will bring hundreds of new jobs to the area.
“We are so happy to be in Chandler,” said Alexander Candelario, President of Gummi World, at today’s grand opening. “Chandler has made us feel welcome- we feel we’ve found a home here for our new manufacturing facility.”
The community of Chandler is committed to developing a sense of place that brings in visitors and enriches the lives of residents–a fact which played a large role in the company’s decision to expand in the area.
Additionally, Gummi World chose Chandler for its high quality, experienced labor force and market reach. The company’s presence is already creating a buzz and drawing attention from the Phoenix business community.
“Today’s grand opening showcases Arizona’s leadership as a manufacturing powerhouse,” said Sandra Watson, President and CEO of the Arizona Commerce Authority. “With this new state-of-the-art manufacturing facility, Gummi World joins Chandler’s vibrant manufacturing landscape while bringing hundreds of skilled jobs to the area.”
Top-of-the-line machinery and specialized drying rooms will accommodate the long list of clients the company is working with to produce gummy vitamins. To expedite this process, there are multiple conference rooms within the Gummi World facility for prospective or current clients and partners to engage in collaborations of their custom dietary supplement formulation.
“We are excited that Gummi World has chosen the West Chandler employment corridor for its new manufacturing facility,” said Chandler Mayor Kevin Hartke. “We appreciate Gummi World’s investment in Chandler and look forward to watching them grow in the years ahead.”
Gummi World’s grand opening marks a recent string of economic activity in the East Valley including ElectraMeccanica and JX Nippon Mining & Metals in Mesa and Corning in Gilbert.
