BioRamo, LLC, a manufacturer of both over-the-counter and prescription liquid and semi-solid products, has selected Fort Lauderdale as the site for the location of its company operations.
“We are very pleased to announce the formation of a new pharmaceutical company to South Florida and the Greater Fort Lauderdale area, specializing in the manufacture of both prescription liquid and semi-solid pharmaceutical drug products,” said BioRamo CEO John Copanos. “While choosing a location for any business is never without difficulties and contention, our decision was definitely made less problematic by the open line of communication and support for new and expanding businesses provided by the City of Fort Lauderdale and the Greater Fort Lauderdale Alliance / Broward County. Incentives for Qualified Target Industries such as Employed Worker Training and Work Opportunities Tax Credits make the prospect of locating in the area very palatable for any small business. When taking into respect the top notch quality of life in Fort Lauderdale, coupled with the city’s access to direct air travel and the proximity of Port Everglades, both which provide a gateway to Latin America, the decision becomes not only less problematic, but totally unanimous. We are delighted to be able to locate our business in Fort Lauderdale, and would like to thank the City of Fort Lauderdale, as well as Enterprise Florida, for the assistance they have given us.”
“Our support of BioRamo’s expansion exemplifies the state’s continuing focus on strengthening both its life sciences sector and manufacturing base,” said Gray Swoope, president & CEO of Enterprise Florida Inc., the state’s primary economic development organization. “BioRamo is a valuable business partner and we appreciate its investment in Florida.”
BioRamo has committed to add 36 jobs with an average salary of $48,690. The company also plans to invest $1.5 million in the renovation of the property where it will be located at 5319 NW 35th Terrace in Fort Lauderdale.
The office of Governor Rick Scott, Enterprise Florida, the City of Fort Lauderdale and the Greater Fort Lauderdale Alliance worked together to help BioRamo LLC, locate in Fort Lauderdale.
“BioRamo, LLC, is an impressive new business with exciting plans for growth,” said Fort Lauderdale Mayor John P. (Jack) Seiler. “The City of Fort Lauderdale values the opportunity to partner with the Greater Fort Lauderdale Alliance to attract this high quality corporate headquarters and manufacturing facility. The BioRamo announcement further strengthens Fort Lauderdale’s leadership position in the region as one of the most desirable locations for new, expanding, or relocating businesses.”
Greater Fort Lauderdale Alliance president and CEO Bob Swindell said, “We are pleased to welcome BioRamo, a company in the life sciences industry which is so important to our area. Our mission is to grow target industry companies in the Greater Fort Lauderdale/Broward County area that can take advantage of our outstanding quality of life, talented workforce and highly rated business climate. We are pleased to have had the opportunity to work with our partners at the City of Fort Lauderdale, Enterprise Florida and the Governor’s Office on behalf of BioRamo and we wish the company every success.”
