Emerging Pharmaceutical Companies Will Expand in Islip Thanks to Town’s Land Consolidation Program

Islip, NY – Islip Town’s efforts to consolidate government space and streamline surplus municipal land has resulted in Sudhakar Vidiyala, owner of InvaGen Pharmaceuticals, Inc. - a premiere pharmaceutical company, and AlphaMed Bottles Inc - a related service company, to seek a major expansion on 18 acres of Town-owned property on Carleton Avenue in Central Islip, part of the Central Islip Department of Public Work’s Yard. The initiative to consolidate municipal properties and buildings was spearheaded by Councilwoman Trish Bergin Weichbrodt as a way to generate additional revenue for the Town; these particular land sales will bring in more than $3.5 million in revenue for Islip’s taxpayers.

InvaGen manufactures a variety of pharmaceuticals for the medical industry, including cardiovascular, anti-inflammatory and anti-diabetic medicines. The company recently applied for an Islip IDA benefit package that will enable the construction of a 125,000 square-foot-facility on 14 acres of land located in a Planned Development District that allows for research and industrial uses. InvaGen plans to invest almost $18 million in the acquisition, construction and equipping of the facility, which will join another one of its operations located on South Research Drive, also in Central Islip. This current expansion will see InvaGen’s employee base grow by approximately 100, bringing the total number of employees to nearly 500, while annual sales are expected to nearly double from $140 million to $250 million.
