We build the Delacon hub to break new grounds

Building the Delacon hub means more than just a new facility. It is a milestone - our commitment to natural nutrition in the future. It’s a wonderful chance to show our strengths and values as a team. We are growing together.
Creating a home base for phytogenius minds

I always wanted to be part of a company with a meaningful mission. With phytogenics, it’s possible. I dare say it’s important for my colleagues as well – to contribute to nourishing the world naturally and sustainably.

The new hub will serve as the center to thrive our mission. As Joerg Niebelschuetz, project lead points out, “We are investing in a sustainable pillar for the future. We speed-up to stay ahead of the competition, to secure our position as leading experts.”

For years, industry dynamics and strategic partnerships have paid off. The demand for natural feed additives has increased. By all indications, it will continue to do so.

It will be possible to produce 20.000 tons of phytogenics per year, in multi-shift operations. That’s equal to 2,283 kg per hour.
Preparing for the future: Sustaining growth with the Delacon hub 

Every second team member has already contributed to this project. Like Wolfgang Stachl, Production Manager and a core team. They have been involved in the entire production, processes, and logistics concept.

Some of our raw materials have special properties. “Hence, we selected appropriate technologies, state of the art production methods,” says Karola, Senior R&D Manager.

She adds, “We introduced a dynamic interface between product development and the fully automatic production.”

Similarly, other colleagues are participating in interior design. So, “it’s very positive how team members can shape the development of the hub,” says Anna Wolfmayr, Global HR Lead.

Finally, working across departments is the basis for the successful implementation of these new processes.

In October 2018, we celebrated the groundbreaking. Steps are now underway to build the production facility.
