DuPont Tate & Lyle’s new distribution centre

(Posted on 04/10/18)

DuPont Tate & Lyle Bio Products Company, LLC, a manufacturer of natural and renewably sourced ingredients, opened a new warehouse and distribution center located at its world-class manufacturing site in Loudon, Tennessee. The new facility will create a streamlined approach to servicing global customers who require various packaging sizes and bolster service around the world to consumers looking for bio-based solutions. The warehouse and distribution center increases DuPont Tate & Lyle’s ability in delivering high-quality products, ensuring customers focused on plant-based ingredients will continue to have access to products when and where they need it.

The on-site warehouse is one of many initiatives demonstrating that DuPont Tate & Lyle Bio Products is committed to servicing the growing global demand for Susterra® and Zemea® propanediol. The warehouse is designed for anticipated future capacity expansions and will support the current capacity of 135 million pounds as well as the additional 35 million pounds of bio-based 1,3 propanediol coming online mid-2019.

According to Todd Sutton, president, DuPont Tate & Lyle Bio Products, “Investing in the warehouse and distribution center enables our company to move forward with the industry and allows us to ensure our customers have access to high-quality products in a timely fashion.” Todd continued, “We received no special incentives on these expansions, but we have worked closely with the state and local economic development agencies in the past. Their support in helping our Loudon operation remain cost competitive on a global scale has been extremely important.”

Previously only bulk shipments were fulfilled from the manufacturing facility with package goods being handled off-site by a third-party provider. The new warehouse and distribution center allows for packaged goods such as pails, drums and totes to be directly filled, stored and shipped from the manufacturing facility to any destination around the world and simplifies the global supply chain.

DuPont Tate & Lyle Bio Products is a joint venture between DuPont, a global science innovator, and Tate & Lyle, a world-leading renewable food and industrial ingredients company.
