Factory equipped with latest technology
After 3 years of preparation, Delvigent is proud to announce the opening of its new feed additives plant in China. The first phase of the state-of-the-art factory has a capacity of 60.000 ton per year for the production of feed additives with short- and medium-chain fatty acids and essential oils as main components, with the possibility to expand to 120.000 ton of feed additives per year in the future. To ensure the highest quality of products, Delvigent invested RMB 100 million in the production facility and used only the highest quality equipment and an intelligent production management system. To achieve the lowest possible discharge of pollution, Delvigent designed and built the plant according to the strictest safety and environmental regulations. Marcel Sengers, who has a rich (production) management experience in multinational companies, has been appointed as General Manager of the company.
Marcel Sengers: “Our vision is that people all over the world will more and more demand affordable, healthy food. Our new factory enables us to execute our mission to support our customers worldwide to realize their targets on healthier animal nutrition, better performance and especially the reduction of the use of antibiotics. We chose to build our production facility in China because this means we are close to the biggest global markets for animal nutrition and have a good availability of high-quality raw materials.”
The enterprise is founded by a group of international investors which all have more than 20 years of experience in animal health and feed additive solutions. “We found each other in our shared view on the need for better antimicrobial replacement solutions to have a sustainable future for agriculture”, says Buis Ebbinge, one of the co-founders of the company.
The start of the company fits in the global trend of reduction of antibiotics in animal nutrition. Delvigent strongly believes that antibiotic replacement solutions which include products based on organic acids are the most reliable alternative when reducing antibiotics. The company has a rich experience on the successful application of such solutions, which Dr. Sam de Snoeck, another co-founder, describes as follows: “Over the last 30 years we have successfully implemented new concepts for antimicrobial replacement which are now common practice in modern animal husbandry all over the world”. Buis Ebbinge adds: “Although external factors are different from country to country, we have seen the same kind of issues everywhere”.
To realize the goals of the company, research and development is the base for Delvigent to keep improving their solutions. This is best told by Dr. Harrison Xie (R&D Director) who received his PhD as chemical engineer from the University of Idaho(US).
Dr. Harrison Xie: “We strive to deliver the best feed additives in the business. This is why we have built a multidisciplinary research and development team which can focus on all aspects of our solutions. In our team independent thinking is stimulated which enables us to understand advanced technology quicker and apply the new knowledge in the best solutions for our customers”.
