New state-of-the-art premix plant for D&D Ingredients
Tuesday, January 28, 2020
D&D Ingredient Distributors, Inc. built a new premix plant at the company headquarters in Delphos, Ohio. The high-tech, state-of-the-art facility features automated micro-ingredient proportioning, blending and precision mixing technology to serve D&D's expanding range of customers. D&D already supplies premixes and blends going into products sold throughout the U.S. and nearly 30 other countries.
"Demand is growing for the reliable supply of precision formulated and manufactured custom premixes. We're helping our partners in the feed and pet food industries to streamline their supply chains," said Arnie Miller, D&D's President and CEO.
"We specialize in the micro ingredients they need. By taking advantage of our ingredient knowledge, formulation expertise, and premixing technology, our customers can better optimize their manufacturing operations. We're helping them concentrate even more on what they do best," added Ted Williams, D&D's chief operating officer.
D&D's new premix facility consists of highly specialized equipment, including a precision-automated micro-proportioning system and a 4-ton twin-shaft horizontal ribbon-paddle mixer. The system combines precise amounts of vitamins, minerals and other micro ingredients in homogenous premixes that blend uniformly in manufactured feed or pet food products. Products manufactured by D&D customers support the health, growth, and active life of dairy animals, beef cattle, pigs, poultry, horses, dogs, cats, and many other species.
Founded in 1976 by Doc and Dorothy Miller, D&D continues to grow as an independent, family-owned business serving the feed and pet food industries from its home in Delphos, Ohio. The company has extensive experience manufacturing a wide range of vitamin premixes, mineral premixes, VTM premixes, nutritional health products, and specialty blends. In addition to premixing and blending, D&D's capabilities include custom formulation, custom grinding, co-packing, warehousing, trans-loading, and distribution.
