This spring, SternMaid America is showing its contract manufacturing capabilities for nutritional supplements and food ingredients premixes at trade shows on both coasts. The company specializes in blending powdered substances, and interested parties can get a closer look March 6 to 8, 2015 at Engredea and Natural Products Expo West in Anaheim, Calif. (Booth 499), and April 8 to 9 at Supply Side East in Orlando, Fla. (booth 469). SternMaid America’s wide scope of services ranges from raw materials quality control to co-packing, storage and logistics.
SternMaid America offers the complete contract manufacturing service chain from its own plant in Aurora near Chicago. At this multi-functional, German-engineered production facility the company can fully meet the needs of American customers. The semi-automatic powder mixing line uses the latest technology and is flexible enough for orders from 1000 to well over 20,000 lbs. It gives high mixing precision up to 1:100,000 with fast setup, and can fill sacks, boxes, drums or big bags. Using specially designed nozzles, it can spray liquid components evenly onto powders. These can be micro-components like flavorings, oils, emulsifiers and the like, including fatty or high-viscosity liquids at high concentrations. The plant also has a small-unit packing line for packaging by the dose.
