Prayon increases by 35% Calcium Phosphate Capacity

Prayon Inc. is pleased to announce a significant investment in its calcium phosphates production platform in Augusta, Georgia (USA).  The multimillion dollar investment expands the production capabilities of the plant by thirty-five percent through a significant debottlenecking project and a new packaging unit.

This expansion enables Prayon to strengthen its presence in the growing global market. "This additional capacity allows us to meet the increasing demand for our unique high-quality products, in particular in the dairy, nutritional, and baking segments", says Stefan Goethaert, Prayon Inc. CEO. "It also positions the facility for future capacity and product line enhancements."

The capacity expansion utilizes modern processes meeting the strictest requirements of the food industry.

Prayon is a leading producer of a broad range of phosphate products used in a variety of applications worldwide.  "In recent years, food applications have gained a growing market share. Today we want to consolidate our strategic position in the food sector while anticipating the markets' latest demands", adds Stefan Goethaert. "The objective is for us to continue to be a reliable global supplier for years to come."
