Alltech opens new facility in New Mexico

More than 125 area residents joined global animal health company Alltech to celebrate the opening of its new facility in Clovis, New Mexico, USA.

Along with members of the Clovis Industrial Development Corporation, Clovis/Curry County Chambers of Commerce, nutrition companies and local dairy farmers, Alltech hosted the ribbon-cutting ceremony at its new office.
“As a global animal health company, we seek out places that are centres for agricultural productivity,” said Alltech President Dr. Pearse Lyons. “Now we will be able to better service the Southwest [of the US] in a research, production, distribution, and sales capacity.”
Previously home to Process Management Company Inc., Alltech’s 240 acre site in Clovis includes a new state-of-the-art sales office, warehouse, laboratory and production facility.
The facility will produce Alltech’s a live yeast culture feed additive Yea-Sacc and its Sel-Plex organic selenium.
It will also support local sales in New Mexico, Texas, Oklahoma, Colorado, and Southwest Kansas providing a local distribution site for its growing customer base.
“Thinking globally, acting locally is our commitment to the agriculture industry,” said Dr. Lyons. “Our goal is to have production and resources at every facility so that we can give local producers access to the latest technologies.”
