Alltech Canada and Alltech Quebec Host Their Open House Days

Alltech Canada was delighted to host the open house day of its newly renovated facilities in Guelph on July 7, 2004. The event was formally launched by the Mayor of Guelph, Kate Quarrie and by Alltech's owner and President, Dr. Pearse Lyons. Guests were invited to a reception and a tour of the facilities. The plant was purchased in 2002 and Alltech undertook extensive renovations resulting in 10,000 square feet of warehouse space and 4,000 square feet of office space.

Mayor Kate Quarrie welcomed Alltech and stated, "the City is grateful to you for your investment and commitment to our community and we look forward to a continued relationship that will nurture your business and help to strengthen the Guelph agri-business community."

Alltech Canada was incorporated in 1988 and since then has expanded throughout the region. The company currently employs 12 employees in Guelph and over 70 people throughout Canada. Mayor Quarrie also added that "Guelph is delighted to act as the Canadian home of this dynamic and growing company."

Alltech also has a plant and office in Alexandria, Ontario and hosted an open day on July 8, 2004. Bill Franklin, Mayor of the North Glengarry Township, attended the event and praised Alltech for the work it had done since acquiring the plant five years ago. The facility produces and distributes Alltech's organic trace mineral product Bioplex(TM).

Despite current economic conditions, Alltech is one of the few companies within the animal feed and allied industries generating new jobs within the industry. In the past eight months, Alltech has almost doubled its sales staff, increasing the total number servicing Canada from six to eleven. This puts Alltech in an even better position to meet and exceed customer expectations.

Alltech is one of the fastest growing top 20 animal health companies in the world. This constant growth reflects the company's commitment to the animal feed industry and to its continuing research in an effort to provide natural solutions to meet the changing needs of the global agricultural industry.
