American Fruits and Flavors is excited to announce our two new facilities: San Fernando, CA and Athy, Ireland.
San Fernando CA
Our new USA headquarters, currently under construction, will combine state-of-the-art flavor and juice manufacturing. This facility will bring together all offices, operations, production, quality and R&D teams under one big roof. The facility is being built from the ground up on an 8 acre parcel in San Fernando, CA, just 10 minutes from our current Pacoima location. The AFF Team is very excited to consolidate our staff into one location for improved internal collaboration and to also provide a modern facility for customer visits and collaboration on projects. This new production plant will significantly improve efficiencies with automation and increased capacity. The new pilot plant will improve our bench to commercialization process. The building will be 200,000 sq ft; substantially increasing our manufacturing area by approximately 300%. The new offices and labs will be over 50,000 sq ft. The opening of our new San Fernando facility is planned for early 2022.
Our new facility in Ireland will be opening in the fourth quarter of 2020, after ten months of construction upgrades to meet AFF’s quality and manufacturing standards. AFF Ireland will provide manufacturing and distribution of our products throughout Europe, Africa, and the Middle East. Our state-of-the-art manufacturing combined with experienced staff will improve the fulfillment of orders to our EMEA customer locations.
