On May 16, 2014, Areva Pharmaceuticals owners and community leaders were joined by residents of the Lanesville Indiana and outlying communities for a ribbon cutting ceremony and open house. On this rainy spring day, many happy faces could be seen as the community event marked the culmination of a long held dream for both the Areva family and community leaders. Residents of Southern Indiana joined the Areva team for lunch and a tour of the new facility’s offices and warehouse, as well as having the opportunity to interact with company and community leaders and ask any questions. The owners and other employees of Areva relished the chance to meet with residents, in a Southern Indiana community that has been very welcoming, and felt like a family.
After a ground breaking on a cold blustery winter day in March 2013, construction began and soon the new facility rose in the community, the beginnings of a planned business park for Harrison County. By spring of 2014 the new corporate and distribution headquarters for Areva Pharmaceuticals was complete and staff moved into their new home from their Kentucky offices. The new 65,000 facility consists of office space and warehouse to house our current range of oncology drugs, as well as room for a growing portfolio of multi-source pharmaceutical products, including drugs for glaucoma and heart disease.
The distribution facility sits on a campus that hopes to one day also host a research and development facility as well as a manufacturing facility. The current distribution facility moves operations from Chicago, and ships pharmaceuticals to wholesalers, who then distribute to hospitals and clinics.
