Matcon and Manumixx – A Winning Combination

In the run up to the London Olympics, Manumixx, a dynamic company providing top quality sportfood and food supplement products, has opened a new facility to meet increased demand.

Manumixx has a mission – ‘To produce the best sport related Food Supplements and Nutritional Products for the European and world market’. Matcon are very proud to have contributed significantly towards helping them reach their goals over the last 8 years.

Manumixx are the leading private label supplier of food supplements; their journey to become market leaders has been rapid and successful.

Matcon first visited the company in 2004. At that time, production was in the region of 9 tons per week, with 7 operating personnel. Manumixx’s growth plans were quite aggressive and on this basis, Manumixx purchased an IBC Blending & Discharge System from Matcon.

Within months of the first installation, production levels had already achieved their limit; 18 operators were producing 70 tons per week. In 2008, Manumixx installed a second Matcon IBC Blender, providing further expansion and growth.

Within 2 years, Manumixx had outgrown their existing facility and investment in the building of a new production facility followed. The original plant remained in operation so that production could continue in parallel. The new factory, which features a ‘Lean’ Matcon Powder Handling System, is a state of the art show-piece, meeting the strictest food and hygiene standards. Full traceability is achieved by electronic recording of all ingredients and process equipment at all times. Automated raw material batching is employed, reducing heavy labour tasks.

With the new installation now operational, production output reaches 450 tons per month on a single shift. This exceptional throughput is achieved without compromising flexibility at any time during the manufacturing process. The Matcon IBC Blenders mix “any recipe, any time” and no work in progress (WIP) or finished goods inventory is necessary.

Manuel Peralta, General Director of Manumixx sums up their journey: “Matcon has helped me grow my business with full confidence that I always supply a top quality mix to my customers.” 

Matcon wish to congratulate Manumixx on their fantastic achievement. A video is available on request, which documents the various process steps and equipment used in this very Lean production environment.
