BIOMIN is an affiliated company of ERBER Group and develops sustainable, antibiotic-free and top-quality mineral feed and premixes for a healthy and profitable animal production. With the groundbreaking ceremony for the new production site, ERBER Group’s further expansion in Austria continues. Full operation of the new site is scheduled for December 2019.
“We have decided to invest in Austria in a sustainable and forward-looking way. This is the proof that ERBER Group’s significant international growth is also manifested in Austria. The new BIOMIN production site is only one of several big steps in the years to come,” said Jan Vanbrabant, PhD, ERBER Group CEO at the groundbreaking ceremony for the production site in Haag am Hausruck, Upper Austria.
The new production site will produce natural, antibiotic-free mineral feed and premixes, which help to increase the performance of swine, poultry, and dairy and beef cattle in an economic way. The construction phase will take 12 months and production at the new site will be fully operational from December 2019.
Markus Edlinger, MBA, Managing Director BIOMIN says: “We are very happy that construction will start soon. The new site will only be 20 minutes by car from the existing production facility. We are building one of the world’s most modern mineral feed production sites here in Upper Austria, and it will be the basis of ERBER Group’s strategy for the future.”
Member of the Austrian National Parliament, Manfred Hofinger, who came to the groundbreaking ceremony on behalf of Upper Austrian Governor Thomas Stelzer, and Konrad Binder, Mayor of the Upper Austrian municipality of Haag am Hausruck, are very happy about the start of the construction: “We are proud that an international group of companies like ERBER and its affiliate BIOMIN are investing a euro amount in the double-digit millions in a site here in Haag am Hausruck. This permanently safeguards jobs and strengthens added value for the entire region on a long-term basis.” “This investment is a strong commitment to our ambitious goals on the market and a big step forward into a continued successful future of the entire ERBER Group,” adds Jan Vanbrabant.
