Niutang Announces Strong Growth in 2012; Expanding Sucralose Capacity by 1200 MT with Launch of State-of-the-Art Facility Sales of Core Products Sucralose, Aspartame, Folic Acid and TGIC increase 18%
CHINO, Calif., Feb. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Niutang Chemical, the leading producer of Sucralose and Aspartame from China, announced today that demand for its core products of Sucralose, Aspartame, Folic Acid and TGIC remained high throughout 2012, resulting in an 18% increase in sales for the company. Niutang also announced that its new, 1200 metric ton capacity, state-of-the-art Sucralose facility is scheduled to begin production before the end of March 2013, with deliveries beginning in the second quarter of 2013.
Niutang's Sucralose manufacturing facilities were at full capacity throughout 2012. The additional 1200 metric ton Sucralose capacity will allow Niutang to meet the demands of the growing marketplace. This is the company's fourth expansion in five years.
"Our new Sucralose facility includes new technologies, automation and process improvement steps to ensure we are managing overall production costs," said Licheng Wang Jr., General Manager of Changzhou Niutang. "Our customers have come to expect great value from Niutang, and we remain committed to providing our customers with the highest quality Sucralose at a competitive price."
Niutang also continues to invest in technology for managing Aspartame cost initiatives. The recent expansion of the company's L-Phenylalanine manufacturing facility allows Niutang to better control raw material costs and maintain a stable supply of high quality L-Phenylalanine for Aspartame production. The additional capacity will be available in 2013.
"The growth of our company is due to our steadfast focus on what our customers need, including minimizing production costs and expanding our product offerings," said Wang. "Once our L-Phenylalanine plant is up and running, we will have even more flexibility to offer our customers high-quality, cost-efficient Aspartame. In addition, our expanded offerings of natural high intensity sweeteners allow our customers the flexibility of introducing Stevia and Monk Fruit into their portfolio of products."
Although Niutang's Folic Acid demand remained flat in 2012, the company's process improvements allowed for Niutang to continue meeting the supply requirements and strict quality regulations for pharmaceuticals, dietary supplements and foods.
Even as the company grows, Niutang's dedication to sustainability initiatives remains intact. In the fourth quarter of 2012, Niutang underwent an extensive environmental compliance audit to ensure that facilities, systems and procedures met national and international environmental requirements. The company also took action to further lower its carbon footprint by investing in eco-friendly packaging configurations. Niutang will soon begin shipping final product to select customers in new, corrugated fiber drums that offer improved handling attributes and increased recycling potential.
