Biomin, a company focusing on health in animal nutrition, has completed its premix facility in Binh Duong, Vietnam. Since its inception in 1997 in the Asia Pacific, the business of Biomin has grown steadily in the region, especially in the Vietnamese market. Slated for a grand opening on Oct. 2, 2013, the 4.7-hectare premix plant will be fitted with a micro dosing system and house a laboratory with technologies such as a liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) system.
With strong growth in the demand for premixes and the existing Biomin plant in Hanoi running at full capacity, there was a need for a second premix facility. Construction on the Binh Duong plant commenced officially on May 12, 2012.
“Vietnam is an important market for us, and with the addition of the new facility, we will achieve a five-fold increase in total capacity,” said Phuong Nguyen Quang, COO, Biomin Vietnam. “This also allows us to export to other countries in the region, including Cambodia and Myanmar. With a fully-automated production system that has a capacity of 6.5 tons per hour, and the cooperation of international partners such as Buhler, BASF, and Adisseo, Biomin is confident that the new Binh Duong facility will meet the highest standards of the industry.”
