Aurobindo breaks ground on N.J. facility


EAST WINDSOR TOWNSHIP, N.J. — Aurobindo Pharma has broken ground on its new facility 567,000-sq. ft. manufacturing facility here, the township announced Monday. Aurbindo CEO Robert Cunard and chairman P.V. Ramprasad Reddy attended the groundbreaking alongside East Windsor Township mayor Janice Mironov, deputy mayor Peter Yeager and council members Denise Daniels and John Zoller. 


“This is an exciting day as the size and scope of this facility marks a significant investment by Aurobindo in East Windsor Township, generating substantial local tax dollars and several hundred new jobs for our area,” Mironov said. “We are gratified that Aurobindo has identified East Windsor and this prime strategic location, connecting directly to East Windsor NJ Turnpike Exit 8 via Route 133, to be their choice to grow and advance their pharmaceutical company.”


Aurobindo has chosen the 90-acre East Windsor campus as its U.S. headquarters, and when the manufacturing and distribution center is fully operational, it is expected to generate 400-500 new jobs. 


“Aurobindo is very happy to reach this milestone in our growth in New Jersey, and our major expansion to East Windsor,” Reddy said.  “We have appreciated the valuable assistance and guidance of the Mayor and her team in moving forward with our business plans and look forward to becoming part of the East Windsor business community as we make this great site our new U.S. corporate home.”
