Anaheim, CA, March 2010. GMP Laboratories of America, Inc., a leading custom manufacturer of dietary supplements and homeopathic drugs, has announced that the recent expansion of its production capabilities for various forms of liquid products is now up and running. The enhanced liquid manufacturing capacity is housed in a state-of-the-art processing and bottling plant acquired in June 2009 and located near its headquarters in Anaheim, bringing the combined premises of GMP Labs to over 100,000 sq ft.
GMP Labs has long been known as a custom formulator and manufacturer of nutraceuticals, herbal supplements, vitamins and minerals. Its annual production of non-liquids includes 40 million bottles of tablets (5.9 billion) and capsules (4.8 billion) as well as 250 million blister cards, many powdered drink mix blends, soft gels and packet/sachet products.
Asked why the big push into liquids? Suhail Ishaq, President of GMP Labs, explains, “It’s just a matter of keeping up with growing demand. We’ve always made a point of being a one-stop resource for our clients, and the industry trend is now moving toward liquids. There are perfectly good reasons for the growing consumer preference for liquid packaging.
“As always, we are committed to Good Manufacturing Practices, a point proudly embedded in our corporate name. If one insists on unsurpassed product quality, one has to maintain the highest manufacturing standards, and that can’t be rushed. Now we’re ready! Our new high-speed production-scale facility is fully equipped to handle a wide range of cold fill liquid products, including liquid dietary supplements, syrups, oral powder and liquid suspensions, nutrient enhanced vitamin water, oxygenated water, ready-to-drink (RTD) beverages, liquid shots, liquid shooters, energy drinks, joint juice, vitamin and mineral supplements, amino acid supplements, colloidal mineral suspensions, antioxidant berry juice blends, omega 3 oils, essential oils, and more.
“The expanded packaging operations include high-speed bottling in size ranges from 30 to 1000 ml and single serving liquid pouches and stick packs. Various water purification and enhancement technologies are utilized in the new facility, including a seven-step reverse osmosis process, UV sterilization and de-ionization processes that produce high quality ultra-pure water at near USP specification.”
Since completion of its liquid production expansion coincides with the Natural Products Expo West 2010, March 12–14, 2010 at Anaheim Convention Center, GMP Labs has chosen this venue to “make a splash.” Its booth (#809) is located in the SupplyExpo 2010 section of the show.
