Rob Brewster, president of Ingredients by Nature (IBN), a leading ingredient and toll-services manufacturer, has announced that the company has invested in doubling the size and capacity of its current facility. The current manufacturing facility in Montclair, Calif., is 30,000 square feet. The company just purchased an additional 30,000 square feet in an adjacent building—the new space is slotted for new processing, research and development and warehousing.
According to Brewster, construction on the expansion will begin this August, and plans include more steam sanitation, granulation and milling capacity and the addition of other specialty powder processing equipment to support IBN's proprietary line of ingredients as well as current and future customer toll projects.
"It became imperative for us to increase our capacity and add high-end, state-of-the-art, value-added ingredient toll services for our proprietary in-house formulas as well as to meet growing customer demands," Brewster said.
