Mayor Andre Syegh alongside Vitaquest team during ribbon cutting ceremonyA little rain wasn't going to stop the Vitaquest team from celebrating the opening of its new 26,000 square-foot state-of-the-art facility in Paterson, NJ. Mayor Andre Sayegh was in attendance for the ribbon cutting ceremony at the location, which was once a fluid bed granulation, agglomeration & microencapsulation powder processing facility owned by Pharmachem. The new location is a result of a $3 million, six-month renovation project marking the company's fourth facility in the state of New Jersey. 

Initially, the company will look to employ around 75 local workers per day to work in two- to three-member operating teams to efficiently handle their highly specialized equipment. In the future, Vitaquest hopes to turn the new facility into a 24-hour operating location.

The company's President and Chief Executive Officer, Patrick Brueggman, discussed what the new facility's capabilities represented for the brand: "Bringing this capability in-house, builds on our TotalQ commitment to quality, gives us the ability to broaden our product offerings, and helps our customers get to market faster. This is an important step for us, and we feel like it sets us apart from other companies in our industry."

With the addition of the Paterson location, Vitaquest says the company is now able to offer its clients application-specific product development, pilot and commercial manufacturing solutions using fluidized bed technology for granulation, agglomeration, microencapsulation, and new innovative product creation in addition to manufacturing, formulation, vertically and horizontally integrated raw material sourcing, ingredient and intermediate processing, packaging and 3PL inventory management, warehousing and fulfillment services.
