Nutrition bar and powder provider Nellson LLC is investing up to $50 million to build a new facility in Ontario, CA to better serve the rapidly evolving needs of its customers, the company said.

The new facility will replace the company’s aging Irwindale, CA operation and should be operational by Q1 2018.

“The decision to build a new site represents the next step in our aggressive transformation of Nellson under Kohlberg & Company’s ownership,”​ said Jamie Better, Nellson’s CEO.

“In Montreal, we have best-in-class bar making capabilities in the former MultiBar facility and our Lachine facility, where we recently invested over $15 million to expand capacity and upgrade our operations; we also just completed a $10 million upgrade and expansion of our Anaheim powder plant. These investments reflect our determination to be the co-manufacturing partner of choice for the leading brands in the nutritional bar and functional powder marketplace.”

The new facility will include:

• Approximately 300,000 square feet under one roof for optimal efficiency, increased capacity and expansion space to support future growth

• State-of-the-art R&D lab to support corporate R&D efforts, commercial scale-up, and testing of customer formulations

• Segregated production lines which provide brand confidentiality, maximum allergen control, food safety, and efficient sanitation, as well as flexible scheduling

• Additional process capabilities for new product formats and shapes

• New packaging capabilities to support on-trend consumer demands
