Innophos Announces Capacity Expansions

CRANBURY, N.J. Innophos Holdings, Inc., announced the following capacity expansions targeted at blostering its ability to manufacture specialty phosphate ingredients.

At Innophos Port Maitland, Ontario, facility, an expansion for the production of potassium phosphates is complete. These specialty products provide unique functionality for the meat and dairy industries.
At the Chicago Heights, IL, facility, Innophos plans for a 25% increase in tri-calcium phosphate capacity. Tri-calcium phosphate is used throughout the food industry and has seen significant increase in demand particularly in the beverage and dairy segments. The expansion is expected to be completed by mid 2011.
The company also confirmed that the expansion of CAL-RISE capacity at its Nashville, TN, facility is on schedule to be completed in July of this year. The investment will also provide a 50% increase in the capacity for mono-calcium products V-90 and Regent 12XX. CAL-RISE, V-90 and Regent 12XX are calcium leavening agents used in the baking industry.
The investments we are making support our stated strategy of focusing on higher value specialty phosphate product applications," commented Joseph W. Golowski, Vice President of the Specialty Phosphates Business. "In addition to providing a significant capacity increase, these upgrades achieve important extensions to our product range to better meet the needs of our customers. Our enhanced product portfolio will further strengthen Innophos industry-leading capability in enabling food and beverage customers to effectively respond to consumer demand for lower sodium products and for calcium fortification."
