BOCM Pauls To Open New Blending Plant

BOCM Pauls have announced the establishment of a new blending facility at Whitchurch in Shropshire.

The move comes as part of a "realignment of manufacturing capacity" and will trade under the name of Mercia Farm Feeds.

A Division of BOCM Pauls, this purpose built plant has the capacity to manufacture 30,000 tonnes of blends per annum and will be configured to ensure that BOCM PAULS is able to compete effectively in all sectors of the conventional and organic blends market, the company said.

The move coincides with the announcement of the closure of the company's compound feed manufacturing facility at Denbigh, which will see ruminant production switched to Newcastle under Lyme and Preston. Game feed manufacture will switch to Bury St Edmunds and Radstock.
