Contract manufacturer invests in a second plant

19 July 2016

SternMaid is due to start construction work on a second production plant for powdered foods and food supplements in September. 

The present factory offers no more room for expansion, especially since a new blending line with automatic weighing of raw materials was commissioned at the end of June and greatly enlarges SternMaid’s capacity. The continuous increase in capacity utilisation that led the company to invest in building a second production plant.

As far as possible the two plants will work independently of each other. Plant 1 will in future focus on all products intended for further industrial processing, whereas Plant 2 will manufacture all retail products. For this reason, the small-pack filling lines currently in use will move into the new plant in 2017. The floor space released will be converted into blending and filling areas for industrial products. Separation of the two types of production will ease the logistic situation on the site, which is made difficult by the increasing volume of goods handled.
