Alleghany Gets 55 New Manufacturing Jobs

Balchem Corporation, which specializes in choline chloride and precision release nutrient technologies for animal nutrition and health, today celebrated the opening of its newest manufacturing facility to meet growing demand. The company is investing approximately $10 million and creating 55 new jobs within two to three years in a 68,000-square-foot building at Alleghany Regional Commerce Center.

The facility will more than double the company’s output capacity for the animal nutrition and health sector with its new encapsulation technology. “This world-class manufacturing facility gives us the ability to better meet our customers’ needs for our products and technology,” Balchem president and CEO Dino Rossi said at a ribbon-cutting event with area business leaders, customers and elected officials.

“By greatly increasing capacity for the animal nutrition and health sector, we’re also advancing solutions that aid in gains in animal productivity and health and reducing the environmental impact of contemporary feeding programs.”

Balchem, based in New Hampton, N.Y., supplies encapsulated nutrients and manufactures more than 140 different products across human, animal and industrial applications. Balchem has worked to refine and improve encapsulation technology and processes for more than 40 years, with keen focus in the animal nutrition and health industry for the last 10 years.

The Covington plant will produce Balchem’s growing portfolio of encapsulated nutrients: AminoShure-L Precision Release Lysine, AminoShure-M Precision Release Methionine, NitroShure Precision Release Nitrogen and NiaShure Precision Release Niacin.
