Audited by a team of Belgian industry experts, the 'Factory of the Future Award' puts forward-looking manufacturers who systematically take up the challenges of the fourth industrial revolution -digitization- into the spotlight. Nuscience received the award for its state-of-the-art factory in Drongen, Belgium, and is the very first company within the animal nutrition sector to win it.

One year after commissioning and start-up, the plant was evaluated by industry experts on 7 important transformations: World Class Production tools, End-to-end engineering, Digital Factory, Human Centered Production, Networked Factory, Eco Factory and Smart Production Systems. The process started with the writing of an extensive self-assessment report on al 7 transformations, followed by a full day visit of an expert jury, to check the maturity on the shop floor. When a maturity score of 4 on a scale of 5 is reached for every transformation, the company is rewarded the award for a period of 3 years.

Nuscience stands out thanks to its strong vision of growth, competitiveness and sustainability. Designed entirely in 3D by an in-house project team, the plant's uniqueness lies in the combination of proven best practices with brand-new concepts. We are the first company that can guarantee zero mistakes in the micro dosage process due to fully automated processes and double checks. There is also a lot of flexibility towards the customer, so we can answer the rapidly changing market demand.

Opened in October 2015, the Drongen plant has replaced the previous production sites in Drongen and Baasrode, enabling the company to double its Belgian production capacity to more than 10,000 tons per month. As Nuscience Belgium's entire product portfolio can be produced on this single location, worldwide export leaves from the Drongen plant.
