Recently, SternMaid officially opened its second production facility for retail products in Wittenburg/Germany. With the new plant, the contract manufacturer for food ingredients and supplements in powder form has increased its annual production capacity to 50,000 tonnes.
The new complex, covering an area of 5,000 m² opposite Plant 1, will in future be used for the manufacture of all retail products. The plant is made up of about 2,500 m² for warehousing, 2,000 m² for production and 500 m² for technical equipment and is directly adjacent to the manufacturer’s existing factory. The company has invested a total of some € 15 m in its construction and created 50 new jobs. SternMaid now employs a staff of nearly 300.
As Torsten Wywiol, SternMaid’s Managing Director, commented: “The modern production plant reflects our aim of consistently offering our customers tailor-made, cost-effective and high-quality solutions in the fields of food and food supplements. By building this second plant, we are increasing our overall capacity and putting ourselves in an even better position to meet the needs of our retail customers. In keeping with our motto ‘Blending is our mission’, we will continue to be able to meet the demand for powder mixtures in full.”
