Nitta Gelatin NA, Inc. opened its North American Application Center Sept. 8. in Morrisville, N.C.
The newly designed, state-of-the-art Application Center will support research and development for North American food, pharmaceutical and industrial customers.
The facility will host new proprietary food technologies and innovative new solutions being developed in collaboration with strategic partners. It also allows the organization to centralize and expand customer service, sales and marketing groups in response to increased global demand for gelatin and collagen products.
“Our new investment here in Morrisville expands upon the relationships and support we have enjoyed since opening our Fayetteville, N.C. manufacturing plant in 2007,” says Juergen Gallert, president and ceo of Nitta Gelatin NA, Inc. “The expanded presence in North Carolina positions us to better serve important clients in North and South Carolina in addition to providing access to increased collaboration with R&D facilities and universities in the Research Triangle Park area.”
For the opening ceremony, executive management leaders from the Nitta Gelatin Group in Japan toured the new facility along with other local and state business leaders who were instrumental in supporting this initiative.
