TIC Gums, a producer of advanced texture and stabilization solutions, has announced the opening of the Brass Mill Operations Center, located at 1311 Brass Mill Road in Belcamp, Maryland, within walking distance of the company’s Richlynn Operations Center.
Company employees, local officials and industry colleagues attended the ribbon cutting ceremony on October 2, 2013. “TIC Gums is proud of our commitment to local growth and economic stability,” said Greg Andon, president. “We believe in supporting the U.S. markets by continuing to manufacture products domestically as we expand into international markets.”
TIC Gums now has three facilities located in Maryland. The Brass Mill Operations Center is an approximately 200,000 square foot facility on 20 acres. This location will initially contain warehousing to keep up with TIC Gums’ fast pace growth. Future plans for the Brass Mill Operations Center include investing in additional manufacturing capabilities to support the current production that takes place at the Richlynn Operations Center.
There is also the Texture Innovation Center, located in White Marsh, Maryland. The technical team at this facility creates new technologies for the food and beverage industries. Collectively known as the Gum Gurus, this team works closely with the other locations to support the advancement of texture and stability through the use of hydrocolloid systems.
TIC Gums has a rich history that spans over 104 years. As a global leader in advanced texture and stabilization solutions, food and beverage companies rely on TIC Gums to improve the quality, consistency, and sensory experiences of their products.
