BIOMIN has further expanded its global production network with the opening of a production plant in Panama.
The new plant will allow for growth and quicker delivery to BIOMIN distributors and customers in new and existing markets throughout the Americas.
The plant produces Mycofix, an mycotoxin deactivating feed additive, and plans to produce PoultryStar, a multi-species probiotic for poultry, in the future.
The site was planned with a long-term perspective and an expectation of growth in mind. It has an installed production capacity of 3,120 tons per year based on one packaging station and a single shift. Its starting production goal is 6,240 tons per year with two shifts. Maximum production capacity can reach 12,480 tons per year with the addition of a second packaging station.
"A strong, longstanding commitment to scientific research has allowed BIOMIN to deliver leading products in an ever-increasing number of markets across the globe," Erber AG chairman Christian Seiwald said at a Aug. 20 ribbon cutting at the plant. BIOMIN is a part of Erber AG.
