Genzyme Begins Major Expansion of Boston Manufacturing Facility
Date:9/18/2007

Project to Support the Increasing Global Need for Genzyme Products

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Sept. 18 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Genzyme Corp. (Nasdaq: GENZ) today broke ground on a significant expansion of its flagship manufacturing facility at Allston Landing in Boston. The $150 million project is focused on adding space for manufacturing support functions, and will allow for the creation of 90 jobs.

The expansion was marked by a ceremony featuring Massachusetts Governor Deval L. Patrick, Boston Mayor Thomas M. Menino, and five-year-old Pompe patient Megan Assink along with her parents, Greg and Deb, and her sister, Hope. The event was attended by more than 500 people, including local political and business leaders, members of the Allston community, patient organizations, foreign government officials, and Genzyme employees.

Commercial production of a single product began at Allston Landing in 1996; Genzyme has since introduced four additional products to the facility. This substantial growth in manufacturing capacity has led to the need for greater space for manufacturing support operations, offices and mechanical equipment.

"The expansion of Allston Landing will help sustain the continued growth of Genzyme's products," said Henri A. Termeer, chairman and chief executive officer of Genzyme. "It will enable us to continue to fulfill our long-term commitment to deliver these life-saving treatments to patients around the world."

Allston Landing was Genzyme's first major manufacturing facility and is now one of 17 worldwide. Thousands of patients rely on the medicines produced at Allston, which is one of the world's largest cell-culture manufacturing facilities. The expansion project includes 86,0
