Sabinsa boosts vertical integration with new India extraction facility

By Hank Schultz , 07-Jan-2014

Sabinsa Corporation, which has headquarters in New Jersery and operations in India and Utah, has begun construction on a new continuous extraction facility in Dobaspet, Karnataka, India that will increase production capacity by 200%. Dr. Muhammed Majeed, who founded Sabina in New Jersey 25 years ago, presided at the groundbreaking ceremony in mid December.  The new facility adjoins the company’s existing continuous extraction facility.

“While we are primarily known for investing heavily in science and IP, we clearly also invest in insuring a sustainable supply of our proprietary ingredients to the marketplace,” Majeed said. “Our farm cultivation program was the first part of the sustainability endeavor, and this expansion is part two.”

The new 75,000 sq. ft. facility will feature a 25 metric tons per extractor and  is expected to be completed in mid 2014.

In other Sabinsa news, the company recently announced the hiring of a technical sales manager to be based in Germany. Rashid Umar Jan, PhD will handle the technical aspects of Sabinsa’s sales in Europe.
