Nuscience opens new production plant

The Nuscience Group has opened its new, state-of-the-art plant in Drongen (Ghent), Belgium. This new plant will replace the current production sites in Drongen and Baasrode and thus represents a major simplification of the production logistics.

The plant will also double the current production capacity to more than 10,000 tons per month. The new plant in Drongen will do more than provide the needed increase in production capacity – this ultra-modern infrastructure also makes it possible to produce Nuscience Belgium's entire product portfolio at one location. The process configuration and the silo park provide the flexibility to quickly respond to market demands and changing technologies within the ingredient and premix sector.

Supporting international expansion

The Nuscience Group started construction of the new plant at the end of 2013, working with a select group of sub-contractors to build the plant on its own initiative. Coming on the heels of the previous commissioning of the new plant in Tianjin, China, this new plant in Drongen is an important step in further optimising the Group's production. The plant is also an important component in the Group's active investment strategy for supporting its international expansion.

Change of CEO

For Patrick Keereman, current CEO and architect of the international expansion and growth of the Nuscience Group, the opening of this new plant is also the occasion to announce the appointment of Johan De Schepper as his successor.
