Plans by feed company I’Anson Brothers Ltd. for a new production facility in northern England have received a boost with approval granted by the local planning authority.
Initial capacity of the plant will be 150,000 metric tons (mt) annually, reports Darlington and Stockton Times. Each of the two lines offer an hourly capacity of 30 mt of bulk feeds for farm livestock. This increase to I’Anson’s production capacity is driven by strong demand from its 3,000 customers locally across northern England, nationally and internationally. The firm also exports to more than 40 countries worldwide. The planned expansion aims to extend the firm’s overseas reach.
