Lilly’s $9 Billion Investment to Accelerate Zepbound and Mounjaro in Lebanon

Eli Lilly and Company has announced a significant expansion of its investment in its manufacturing site located in Lebanon. The company’s new commitment of $5.3 billion more than doubles its previous investment, bringing the total investment in the site to $9 billion.

This expansion aims to bolster Lilly’s capacity to produce active pharmaceutical ingredients for injections such as Zepbound and Mounjaro, which are vital in treating chronic conditions like obesity and type 2 diabetes among adults. Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb praised Lilly’s pivotal role in driving economic growth in Indiana, particularly through initiatives like the LEAP Research and Innovation District in Lebanon. He emphasized the company’s choice to invest in Indiana as a testament to the state’s conducive environment and skilled workforce.

The increased investment will create 200 new full-time jobs at the Lebanon site, spanning roles from engineers and scientists to operating personnel and lab technicians. Once fully operational, the facility is projected to employ around 900 individuals. Additionally, over 5,000 construction jobs are anticipated during the development phase.

While some residents, like Rosie Holloman, express optimism about the investment, others, like Dan Creech, voice concerns about the impact on farmland and the local community’s character. Creech acknowledges the economic benefits but emphasizes the need to maintain a delicate balance between growth and preserving Lebanon’s tight-knit community.

Lebanon city officials are proactively preparing for the anticipated growth, focusing on upgrading housing, infrastructure, and emergency services. Ben Bontrager from the City of Lebanon highlights ongoing efforts to enhance facilities, roads, utilities, and comprehensive planning to accommodate the city’s future trajectory.

Groundbreaking at the Lebanon manufacturing site took place in 2023, with Lilly expecting to commence production by late 2026, gradually scaling up operations through 2028.
