Sabinsa Corp. has begun construction on a new continuous extraction facility that will increase production capacity by 200 percent. Sabinsa’s founder, Dr. Muhammed Majeed, oversaw the groundbreaking ceremony for the new manufacturing plant next door to the company’s existing continuous extraction facility.
“While we are primarily known for investing heavily in science and IP, we clearly also invest in insuring a sustainable supply of our proprietary ingredients to the marketplace,” said Dr. Majeed. “Our farm cultivation program was the first part of the sustainability endeavor, and this expansion is part two.”
The earth-breaking ceremony for the $5 million USD 75,000-square-foot expansion project at Dobaspet was performed on Dec. 12. The manufacturing plan will feature a 25 MT per day capacity continuous extractor, a 15,000-square-foot downstream facility, a state of the art microbiology lab and a 45,000-square-foot warehouse. The facility is expected to complete in mid-2014.
