Nuscience Group invests in new production facilities
In the coming three years, Nuscience Group will invest in Belgium and the Netherlands to build new state-of-the-art production facilities.
These investments are part of a reorganisation of the production set-up in the Benelux to increase cost efficiency and to specialise the factories at the same time.
Nuscience Group produces premixes and specialty ingredients on three locations in Belgium: Drongen, Baasrode and Willebroek (as Preconex), mainly for the Belgian and international markets. In Utrecht the production site is specialised in production of premixes, farm minerals and MervoBest.
The new facility in Drongen will be built on the same location, next to the existing plant and offices. Production at Baasrode and Willebroek will be closed.
In Utrecht Nuscience has acquired the Agrifirm Feed plant next to the current premix production factory. The purpose is to construct on this site a new premix and protein concentrates factory focusing on maximum cost-efficiency.
Drongen will become the expertise centre for producing piglet feeds, piglet concentrates and specialty ingredients and of course also anything that comes out of Nutrition Sciences, our innovation department. For Utrecht we keep the focus on large volumes of premixes, farm minerals, concentrates and protected proteins.’
‘This investment plan has started and will probably be finalised by end 2015’, says Patrick Keereman, CEO Nuscience Group. ‘We will bring four production sites together on two sites in order to increase efficiency and to specialise production where it is appropriate.
