Facility doubles Wellington Foods production capacity.

Wellington Foods, Inc., a nutritional supplement manufacturer, recently expanded its production capacity by moving its operations from Long Beach, Calif., into a renovated facility in Corona, Calif.

The 116,000-square-foot facility will house the companys headquarters and manufacturing operations.

Wellington Foods has produced liquid and powder nutritional supplements for more than 35 years and has recently seen an increased demand for its liquid products in the marketplace, the company said in a press release. Moving to the Corona location, the company nearly doubles its manufacturing capacity and has added additional production capabilities to meet the needs of the industry and its customers.

The facility is equipped with laboratories for quality control, microbiological testing, research and development and flavor development. Sophisticated process automation software allows quality-control personnel and production workers to have complete control throughout the manufacturing process, according to the company.

The decision to invest in Wellington Foods new manufacturing facility was very important for us as it positions our company for exceptional growth and an even broader capacity to serve our customers and the industry, said Tony Harnack, president of Wellington Foods. This move is the culmination of years of planning and a commitment to designing a production operation that meets our high quality standards. This cGMP-compliant facility allows us to apply our manufacturing technology to develop and produce quality products that meet and exceed industry standards.
