Eden Prairie, Minn. (May 20, 2014) – Beginning in June, Zinpro Corporation will manufacture three new high-concentration spray-dried products for the animal feed market in China: Availa®Zn 170, Availa®Mn 150 and Availa®Fe 150. With the addition of these new products, the company now has a broader offering of Zinpro Performance Minerals® in China to meet the needs of livestock and poultry producers.
“We know that producers in China are seeking solutions to improve animal performance and the productivity of their operations,” said Sou Fei Chin, Ph.D., Vice President of Sales – North Asia, Zinpro Corporation. “As the leader in trace mineral nutrition, we are pleased to introduce these three new research-proven Performance Minerals that offer numerous benefits including: improved feed conversion, reproduction and immune function. These are factors that give producers a competitive edge.”
These will be the first products manufactured at the Zinpro Corporation facility in Wuxi. The company has exported products to China for more than 15 years and has built this new facility to better serve its customers and support the growth of its business in this market.
“Our new manufacturing facility in China represents an exciting step for the future growth of Zinpro Corporation,” said Dr. Chin. The manufacturing facility in Wuxi follows the same manufacturing protocols and requires the same rigorous raw materials specifications as Zinpro Corporation manufacturing facilities in the United States. As a result, products manufactured in China will be of the same premium quality as products manufactured in the United States.
“Our facility in Wuxi is focused on serving the China market,” emphasized Dr. Chin. “There will be no effect on U.S. operations. The new manufacturing facility currently under construction in Shell Rock, Iowa, will service our growing needs in North America and other parts the world.”
Zinpro Performance Minerals are the most research-proven trace minerals in the industry. Designed to help improve animal performance, these products are also proven to deliver a strong return on investment for producers.
“Our industry-leading Performance Minerals are designed and manufactured to be the most consistent, bioavailable, cost-effective and predictable trace minerals available,” concluded Dr. Chin. “We are pleased to deliver this high standard of excellence to livestock and poultry producers.”
