BIOMIN recently opened an ultra-modern premix production facility capable of producing 10 metric tons of finished product per hour. It includes an on-site laboratory for quality control and 54 silos with a storage capacity of 1100 m³.
“The new production unit represents the BIOMIN promise to customers by leveraging advanced technologies to deliver high quality animal nutrition solutions while ensuring safety, sustainability and traceability” stated Franz Waxenecker, managing director of BIOMIN.
The facility has been designed to ensure full transparency and minimize the risk of cross-contamination of final product. Self-driving automated guided vehicles (AGVs) ensure transport of materials throughout the facility in a closed container system. Batch managed inventory and electronic records capture when employees perform specific actions such as dosing or emptying each silo, for example.
The facility has been accredited with rigorous quality programs, namely GMP+, ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and HAACP.
BIOMIN has enacted a series of measures to ensure that it can continue to deliver premix products to farmers, feed millers and integrations in Austria and throughout the world.
Precautions taken to limit the risk of coronavirus infection include requiring employees to wear masks, restriction of outside visitors, increased sanitation measures and staggered shift work, among others.
