Belgium-based Nuscience’s new feed plant in Ghent is granted the ‘Factory of the Future 4.0’ prize.
Nuscience’s new factory in Ghent for producing premixes, young animal feed and specialties, has been named as this year’s “Factory of the Future 4.0”, a prestigious prize, which is being awarded to future-oriented manufacturers that meet the challenges of the fourth industrial revolution.
The plant was commissioned at the end of 2015 to replace the locations in Baasrode and Drongen. “We are constantly looking for opportunities to lower costs, improve product quality even further, while simultaneously increasing the efficiency and flexibility of production. We were unable to optimize further in the two old plants, particularly owing to the constraints of the buildings and layout of the factories. This investment significantly reduces our operating costs.” Chris Mercier, COO of the Nuscience Group said.
The Nuscience plant in Ghent has to be a real all-rounder in terms of production techniques and end products. A complete range of ‘young animal nutrition’ under the name Nutrition4U leaves the factory daily, as well as many premixes. Nuscience works with 350 different types of raw materials and more than 2,000 current recipes.
Almost all of the production capacity of 10,000 tonnes per month is achieved using 11 Dinnissen mixers of Dutch origin with a variety of specifications.
