MilliporeSigma Breaks Ground

Today, the City of Visalia welcomed the MilliporeSigma team back to Visalia's Industrial Park.

This time around, their presence grew a bigger crowd than usual.

"It's a pleasure to be here today as MilliporeSigma breaks ground on their new West Coast Distribution Center," shared Mayor Bob Link. "Our industrial park helps Visalia to continue to diversify our economy while importing outside wealth to be circulated in the local economy.  That’s why we’re so excited to have another new community member in Millipore Sigma and development partner in Scannell Properties."

A world leader in life science, MilliporeSigma develops and manufactures scientific lab materials, technologies, and services in the areas of pharmaceuticals, equipment and food and drug testing.

Located off Riggin, the new West Coast Distribution Center will be a 120,000 square foot facility and will house 45,000 products.

"This new distribution center will give us quicker order fullfillments and faster delivery to customers, dramatically improving service for MilliporeSigma," shared Jeff Lasselle, Head of MilliporeSigma North America Distribution.

With construction starting soon, MilliporeSigma plans to be operational by late fall.

MilliporeSigma is a subsidiary of Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany, an international pharmaceutical conglomerate. For more information, visit them online at
