Penetron Plant Expansion Complete
“Expanding our blending facility in Pennsylvania is part of our international growth strategy,” explains Christopher Chen, Director PENETRON International. “For example, we are in the process of meeting ISO 14001 requirements to help us put an effective environmental management system in place; this will improve our resource efficiency, reduce waste and drive down costs.”
While the company is streamlining systems to meet ISO 14001 guidelines, efforts were also made to evaluate and improve almost every process: “We looked at how to improve the way we do business to optimize our processes beyond the ISO standards. The results make us one of the cleanest, most efficient and productive facilities in the business,” says Christopher Chen.
During the past year, PENETRON also installed a new state-of-the-art automated dispensing and bagging system to increase production of the PENETRON ADMIX Soluble Bag product. This packaging solution has been extremely successful and demand is rising steadily, which required additional capital investments to meet the projected growth.
Kyle Jornow, Plant Manager, adds: “We now have enough flexibility to guarantee prompt dispatch of orders – even during peak production periods.”
