Bartek Ingredients Purchases New State-of-the-Art Maleic Anhydride Reactor
On the heels of its successful expansion of its malic and fumaric acid finishing capacity earlier in 2019, Bartek Ingredients announced the decision to purchase a 22,000 metric tons/year reactor from MAN Energy Solutions in Deggendorf, Germany.
The reactor will expand the company’s maleic anhydride capacity ahead of anticipated long-term growth in the global acidulants market. It further integrates Bartek’s upstream raw material production with its downstream finishing capacity.
“The new reactor will be a welcome addition to the North American market, where additional capacity is projected to be required by 2023,” Bartek CEO John Burrows said. “Bartek is committed to leading the global market in malic and food grade fumaric acid, and ensuring that our customers are supplied for years to come is a vital element of our long-term strategy.”
Bartek expects delivery of this new reactor in Q4 2020 with the capacity to be online in Q2 2021.
“This investment decision by the Bartek board supports the company’s strategy of investing ahead of market demand and reinforces the company’s objective to operate a best-in-class manufacturing operation,” said Matt Chapman, partner at Bartek’s parent company, TorQuest Partners.
