Renessenz is expanding its WinSense manufacturing facilities at its plant in Jacksonville, Fla., and expects a boost in its plant capacity by 40%, to better support the growing demand for high-performance coolant products.
Scheduled for completion in the third quarter of 2013, the upgraded process and capacity expansion will allow Renessenz to manufacture more coolant ingredients, which are used in oral care, confectionery and beverage applications.
“Our WS-3 and L-Menthyl lactate have achieved FSSC 22000 certification, and this expansion will further enable Renessenz to support customer requirements for high value, high-performance coolant ingredients.” said Eric Beatty, Renessenz vice president and general manager. “It represents our long-term commitment to our customers and markets.”
At the same time, Renessenz said it's continuing its research and development into new coolant molecules. The next generation of coolant ingredients will extend the performance of cooling intensity to new levels of cooling sensation, targeted to a wide range of market segments and applications.
“Renessenz is dedicated to developing innovative products for our customers and this expansion supports our strategy to grow our position in sensory ingredients.” said Ted Butz, president and CEO of Pinova Holdings. “The continued investment in innovation is crucial to securing sustainable growth and prosperity.”
