14/11/2017: BIOMIN opens new production facility in China

The new Wuxi-based plant produces innovative Biotronic® and Mycofix® product lines

BIOMIN has further expanded its capacity to serve clients in the fast-growing Chinese market and internationally with the opening of a production plant in Wuxi, Jiangsu Province, in China.

Biomin is strongly committed to serving clients in China,” stated Dr Hannes Binder, Managing Director of Biomin.

Biomin has been active in the Chinese market for nearly 20 years, having opened its first production unit in China in 2004.
 The latest addition to the firm’s global production network encompasses a 5,600m² building featuring offices, a warehouse and laboratory designed to provide both quality control and analytical services for customers.

“This investment reflects our high ambitions for the future,” commented Dr Binder.

Biotronic and Mycofix capacity
“We value the opportunity to provide customers with the right mix of innovative, high quality products and cutting-edge services,” explained Jack An, Managing Director of BIOMIN China.

“With this new Wuxi facility, we intend to support and further develop client relationships,” he added.

Biomin facility in Wuxi has two automated acidifier production lines with a total installed capacity of 32,000 tons per year, and four packing lines.

The configuration will produce five products within the Biotronic product line, a family of enhanced acidifiers.

Another automated production line with installed capacity of 32,000 tons per year produces the firm’s leading mycotoxin-deactivating feed additive, Mycofix.

With the new facility coming online, 
Biomin doubles its global capacity to produce Mycofix.

Production strictly abides by FAMI-QS, HACCP and ISO 9001 certifications, and quality system audits occur at least twice per year.

State-of-the-art laboratory 
The Wuxi facility includes a more than 360m² scientific laboratory designed in accordance with feed safety management and testing process rules and requirements.

The lab fulfills two key functions: quality control of products made on-site and mycotoxin analysis for 
Biomin customers. For the past decade, high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) has been the method of choice of Biomin China for mycotoxin detection services for customers.

The new facility includes both HPLC and a more advanced technology: liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry/mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS). The newer method offers high throughput, high sensitivity, and high accuracy for a lot more mycotoxins and metabolites, including masked mycotoxins.

Opening ceremony 
The opening ceremony and tour of the new 
Biomin facility in Wuxi took place on 30 October 2017 in the presence of 500 distinguished guests, including several directors of local authorities and representatives of the Austrian Consulate General Shanghai Commercial Section.
