SternMaid Opens a Second Plant

SternMaid Opens a Second Plant

SternMaid has officially opened its second production plant 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 company has invested a total of some €15 million in its construction and created 50 new jobs. SternMaid now employs a staff of nearly 300.

Torsten Wywiol, SternMaid’s managing director, comments: “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.”

The new 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. Space has also been left for further extensions. As far as possible the two plants will work independently of each other. Plant 1 will in future focus on all products intended for further industrial processing, whereas Plant 2 will manufacture all retail products. For this reason, all the small-pack filling lines will gradually be moved into the new production plant by the end of October 2017. The floor space thus released will be converted into blending and filling areas for industrial products. Separation of the two types of production will ease the logistic situation on the site, which has been made difficult by the increasing volume of goods handled.

Every day, up to 200 tonnes of ingredients for the food industry are shipped from SternMaid and exported to over 100 countries around the world. As the production location, Wittenburg is an important part of the Stern-Wywiol Gruppe alongside the Head Office in Hamburg and the research facility in Ahrensburg.
