Unipharma LLC, a Venezuelan pharmaceutical company, will relocate its headquarters to Tamarac in Broward County, Gov. Rick Scott announced Monday.

The company, which manufacturers pharmaceuticals and “nutraceuticals,” expects to create 100 jobs and bring $50 million in capital investment to Broward, according to a release announcing the move.

The company cited Broward’s access to foreign markets via Port Everglades and the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport.

Unipharma also noted a growing life sciences cluster, the region’s focus on contract manufacturing in the pharmaceutical and nutraceutical industries, and the ability to attract top talent based on favorable quality of life issues.

“We are happy to say that we have begun another chapter in our company’s history with our new manufacturing site in Broward County. Our new facility will not only provide jobs for the local community, but it will support Florida’s growing life science industry as well,” chief executive Reinaldo Santa Marta said in the release. — Emily Schmall
