Tolmar expands more into Windsor, plans for 300 employees by early 2019
February 25, 2017
Officials with Tolmar, a Fort Collins-based pharmaceutical manufacturing and development company, are looking to hire 60 positions in the company.
Some of those opens positions, said Tolmar CEO Mike Duncan, will work in Windsor as a part of the company’s expansion into the town.
Tolmar develops and produces injectable and topical pharmaceuticals designed to treat aliments ranging from prostate cancer to skin problems, he said.

Fort Collins-based pharmaceutical developer and manufacturer Tolmar will start moving a few hundred employees to Windsor this year.
In April, about 100 administrative jobs, ranging from members of their engineering group to their clinical science team, will start moving into a building the company bought a little more than two years ago at 9351 Eastman Park Drive, said Tolmar CEO Mike Duncan.
Stacy Johnson, Windsor's director of economic development, lauded the addition.
"It's a huge win for the region when we can retain and expand a company like Tolmar," Johnson said. "I'm glad that we're also filling a building I know has had some vacancy. It hasn't been fully leased since a few years ago."

These aren't the first Tolmar jobs to come to Windsor.
In 2012, the company bought and renovated a building at 1201 Cornerstone Drive, creating a new pharmaceutical manufacturing plant. Last year, the Food and Drug Administration inspected and approved the first few products for production at the facility, Duncan said. About 30 employees work at that plant, but as more products get approved for production in Windsor, more jobs will move there.
"That'll be a gradual process that will move several hundred positions over there between the middle of this year and the start of 2019," he said. "Windsor will probably have at least 300 people by the first quarter of 2019, between both (production and administrative) sites."
Although Tolmar will keeps its original manufacturing site and a research and development facility in Fort Collins, many of the company's employees will eventually end up in Windsor, Duncan said.
The company has 635 employees. About 110 employees work at the research and development building and at least 100 will stay at the manufacturing building in Fort Collins. The rest will move to Windsor, he said.
Windsor essentially will become the true administrative headquarters of Tolmar, but for FDA purposes, the Fort Collins plant will remain the company's manufacturing headquarters.
"Windsor is truly an expansion for us," Duncan said. "We're all very excited to get moved over there and be a part of that community. A lot of our employees live in Windsor or in Greeley and they're excited to get closer to home."
Once all of Tolmar gets all of its products approved for production in Windsor, the company will take that opportunity to remodel and update the Fort Collins plant, he said.
