Huber Health & Nutrition Expands Granulation Capabilities to Meet Growing Customer Demand

ATLANTA, May 30, 2014 – Huber Engineered Materials (HEM), a division of J.M. Huber Corporation, announces an expansion of its Modesto, California, manufacturing operation to accommodate additional capacity for high shear batch granulation production for its Health & Nutrition business.  The new high-shear granulation becomes operational in June and will serve both the dietary supplement and pharmaceutical markets.  The expansion adds high shear wet granulation to existing fluid bed agglomeration, continuous high-shear granulation, blending and milling capabilities.

“This is a significant step forward for Huber Health & Nutrition.  We continue adding to our granulation capabilities, as demand for our granulations has outpaced the growth of the market overall,” says Ryan Dismukes, Vice President and General Manager of Huber Health & Nutrition.  “Our customers have asked us to provide products using this technology.  This investment allows us to expand our product offering to include additional granulations, including certain botanicals, extended release formulas and microencapsulation.  I think this new capability not only demonstrates Huber’s financial commitment to our markets, but also shows we listen and respond to input that we receive from customers.  It’s a clear example of our Health & Nutrition business pursuing competitive advantage through customer intimacy and operational excellence.

“We’ve also added a lab-scale unit in Huber’s Havre de Grace, Maryland, applications technical operation to support product development,” Dismukes concludes. 

Huber Health & Nutrition offers a number of processing capabilities and services, including high shear continuous and batch wet granulation, fluid bed granulation, blending, custom granulations, triturations and contract manufacturing.  Those interested in learning more can visit www.hubermaterials.com/nutrition or contact Nick Kalfas, Global Director of Sales, at 610-838-6871 or Scott Marsi, Director of Commercial Development, at 609-713-0254.
