WHITE MARSH, Md., (November 18, 2014)–TIC Gums announced today the opening of a new manufacturing facility in Guangzhou, China, allowing the company to meet the growing global demand for texture and stability solutions within the food and beverage industry. The new facility significantly expands the company’s production capabilities to fulfill orders for the Asia Pacific market.

“Manufacturing in China allows us to meet our expectations of high service levels to our customers there and in the surrounding region. Customers will enjoy shorter lead times and overall faster responsiveness which are very important to our customer experience,” said Greg Andon, TIC Gums’ President. “TIC Gums’ Guangzhou location is ideal for servicing both China as well as the rest of Asia.”

Guangzhou is ranked among the largest cities in China with more than 12.7 million inhabitants and is one of China’s leading commercial and manufacturing regions. The new facility reflects TIC Gums’ strict quality and safety standards and utilizes the same manufacturing principles as its North American operations.

This facility will serve as the Asia Pacific regional headquarters; TIC Gums will remain based out of Maryland, USA.
