Through its Center of Excellence program, the Company plans to consolidate all milling activity at Lenexa, KS, using proprietary pin milling technology. In comparison with other milling technology platforms, such as ball milling, pin milling allows greater process control, including temperature, feed rates and milling speed, to provide powder media with increased consistency and performance.

The expansion will feature completely separate areas for Animal Component Free (ACF) and Animal Component Containing (ACC) manufacture, both featuring pin milling technology. Upon completion, two dedicated man
