BioZyme Inc. announced that, due to the rapid growth of its Vita Charge product line, the natural feed supplement manufacturer recently built a small-package manufacturing line at its St. Joseph, Mo., headquarters to keep up with customer demand.
BioZyme's new manufacturing line gives it greater flexibility, capacity and ability to fill customer orders more quickly. Additionally, BioZyme hired a new employee to run the line.
"The Vita Charge line of products has experienced tremendous growth over the last four years," BioZyme vice president of sales and marketing Lisa Norton said. "This exciting growth has pushed our current supplier's limits when it comes to capacity and fast turnaround for orders. More than once, we have been in a four-week backorder for the Vita Charge products." Norton explained that this is what led BioZyme to the decision to expand.
Vita Charge combines essential vitamins, organic trace minerals and BioZyme's proprietary Amaferm natural feed additive to improve the appetite and performance of stressed animals during weaning, showing, breeding, vaccination and transportation. The product line includes a liquid supplement, bolus, gel capsule, paste, dispersible powder, drench and molasses-based tub.
BioZyme, founded in 1962, develops and manufactures natural, proprietary products focused on animal nutrition, production, microbiology and reproduction. With a commitment to applied research, BioZyme offers a complete line of highly available vitamin, mineral, trace mineral and protein supplements for animals such as cattle, pigs, poultry, sheep, goats, horses and dogs.
