Sensient Opens Three New Facilities

MILWAUKEESensient Technologies Corporation has opened new facilities in China and Costa Rica.

The new 62,000-square-foot Guangzhou location includes a four-story office and laboratory building, a manufacturing plant and a separate fragrance building. The laboratories include a flavor creation center, a pharmaceutical laboratory, a color research center and a quality control lab. Warehouses for raw materials and finished products have also been completed. These facilities will produce colors, flavors, pharmaceutical coatings and fragrances, primarily for the Chinese market.

The new technical center and sales office in Shanghai, China will feature the latest lab equipment and an ultra-high-temperature process pilot plant. Customers will be able to custom-tailor and sample foods and beverages featuring Sensient colors and flavors in a sophisticated application kitchen.

Kenneth P. Manning, Chairman and CEO of Sensient Technologies Corporation, said: "These new facilities highlight China's increasing role in Sensient's continued strategic growth. China's emerging middle-class constitutes an important new market for our products, one that has already begun to contribute to Sensient's growth and will gain in importance going forward."

Sensient also announced the opening of a new state-of-the-art facility in Alajuela, Costa Rica. The new flavors center in Costa Rica will serve as the base of Central American and Caribbean operations. This facility includes laboratories for beverage and dairy applications and savory flavors staffed by product application teams, and a quality control laboratory. The site will also develop products for local markets by blending flavors to fit local tastes.

A Sensient business office and a culinary center for flavorists have also been opened at this site. Sales personnel and flavor technologists will be on site to service customers manufacturing beverages, savory foods, dairy products and sweets and snacks.
