ORIGO TO OPEN NEW PLANT IN ASHLAND, OH
Source: ORIGO news release



ORIGO, a leading manufacturer of fat supplements for the dairy, swine and poultry markets, today announced the impending opening of its new manufacturing facility in Ashland, OH. Located at 1025 Faultless Drive, the plant's three buildings cover 150,000 square feet and will increase the company's production capacity by a factor of five.

"It goes without saying that we're very excited about the opening of this new state- of-the-art manufacturing facility," noted Michael Hippert, chief executive officer. "Our original manufacturing plant in New Ulm, MN has been operating at full capacity for several months, and the new plant will enable us to grow and offer more alternative product lines to companies needing fats and oils in either liquid bulk or bags. In addition, this facility will give us also the capability to explore more nutritional supplements requiring other forms of manufacturing."

According to Hippert, ORIGO installed two new rail spurs serviced by the Ashland Railway, giving the company access to multiple Tier 1 railroads. In addition, the new plant includes 350,000 gallons of storage capacity, with more tanks to be added soon.

Hippert noted that logistical costs are on the rise, and this was a key factor in building the new plant. "Not only will we be closer to our suppliers, but ORIGO will be able to service our customers in the Eastern U.S. in a more timely and cost-efficient manner."

Once opened, the highly automated new facility will employ 12 full-time employees, bringing ORIGO's total employment in both locations to 20.
