Danish emulsifier specialist Palsgaard has opened its new factory in Malaysia. The facility is able to produce various single emulsifiers as well as a variety of emulsifiers and stabilizers blends and has a capacity of 20,000 metric tons per year.
The official opening ceremony took place on August 20. The factory is located in Nusajaya, Johor, in the southern part of Malaysia and cost approximately $36 million to build. The new factory covers an area of approximately 7,300 sq m, comprising a high tech manufacturing plant and R&D facility, laboratory, warehouse, and administration center. The location for Palsgaard’s new facility was chosen specifically for its proximity to the source of raw materials, such as palm oil and its derivatives. Additionally, the proximity to harbor and to Palsgaard Singapore’s Innovation Center for dairy, ice cream, soya, bakery, and confectionery applications, makes the location ideal.
