Kiotech International invests £2m in new plant, production
Kiotech, the international supplier of natural high performance feed additives to enhance growth, health and sustainability in agriculture and aquaculture, has invested £2million primarily into new production facilities and office space at its Manton Wood facility, UK.
The investment includes the purchase of the property, building new production capacity, refurbishing the warehouse and doubling the office space available.
“The investment in production has been made to ensure we maximise the efficiency of the plant,” says Kiotech International chief executive Richard Edwards. “We are moving towards 7day, 24 hour working and the new production line will give us capacity for growth.”
Manton Wood is the UK headquarters of Optivite, one of the largest independent animal nutrition and feed additive businesses in the United Kingdom, which was acquired by Kiotech International in September 2009.
The combined company recently announced half year results which indicated that the integration of the two businesses was progressing well and reported sales up three times at £11.08m and profits up 157per cent at £0.77m.
