Functional ingredients manufacturer Beneo has invested €7.7 million in new storage capacity at its Offstein facility in Germany.
The new 25 metre-high storage warehouse, which opened in February, has the capacity to house more than 8,500 Euro pallets, which will store the company’s crystalline functional carbohydrates, Isomalt, Palatinose and GalenIQ.
The fully automated Offstein facility, located close to the company’s packaging and shipment operations, will allow Beneo to continue to reduce its need for transport.
Ralph Cartarius, operation managing director at Beneo’s Offstein facility, commented: “The new warehouse gives much more storage potential for our functional carbohydrates. It also helps us to gain cost, time and logistics efficiencies, as well as bolstering our business contingency strategy still further.”
He continued: “Previously, the majority of our crystalline Palatinose, Isomalt and GalenIQ was stored externally, as the onsite facilities were limited. This expansion increases our supply security and reduces transport but it also saves valuable time and energy for us to redirect into other operations.”
