“We are excited that Gummi World has chosen the west Chandler employment corridor for its new manufacturing facility,” Mayor Kevin Hartke said in a press release after a Dec. 13 ribbon-cutting ceremony.

“We appreciate Gummi World’s investment in Chandler and look forward to watching them grow in the years ahead.”

The new facility includes machinery to create the supplements, specialized drying rooms and conference rooms for client meetings.
