JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Gov. Rick Scott announced on Wednesday that the VISTAKON® Division of Johnson & Johnson Vision Care, Inc. will expand production and refurbish existing lines for their ACUVUE® brand contact lenses in Jacksonville.

The company will add 100 jobs with a capital investment of $218 million over three years. VISTAKON® is a member of the Johnson & Johnson family of companies and currently employs about 1,800 individuals in Jacksonville.

Scott visited VISTAKON® in May to celebrate the elimination of the sales tax on manufacturing equipment and machinery. The sales tax elimination, along with no personal income tax and Florida’s 15 seaports, will allow manufacturers in the state to save costs, increase capital investments and hire more Florida workers. Thanks to the legislation, the company will save nearly $14 million in sales tax during this expansion.
