Huber Engineered Materials (HEM) of Atlanta, GA has announced an expansion of its Modesto, CA manufacturing operation to accommodate additional capacity for high shear batch granulation production for its Health & Nutrition business. The new capacity is scheduled to become operational this month and will serve both the dietary supplement and pharmaceutical markets. Ryan Dismukes, VP & GM of Huber Health & Nutrition, said, 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. 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 micro-encapsulation. Huber has also added a lab-scale unit at its Havre de Grace, MD facility to support product development.
