Roche to Close

Roche To Close
Vitamin E Plant
● Roche Vitamins Inc. will close its vitamin
E production facility in Nutley, NJ by
the end of November.
“Our initial plan was to phase out
production from the Nutley facility
during the middle of 2004 to coincide
with the opening of our state-of-the-art
vitamin E production site in Sisselin,
Switzerland,” said Chris Goppelsroeder,
president. However, the plant is outdated
and not sufficiently competitive,
he said. “That, coupled with the current
state of depressed vitamin prices,
makes it impossible for us to continue
vitamin E production (at the Nutley
facility) here for another year.”
The company anticipates that the
loss of 7000 metric tons in the facility’s
annual production capacity “could have
a short-term negative impact on the
supply of vitamin E,” Mr. Goppelsroeder
stated. However, the new Sisselinbased
plant’s 25,000 metric ton capacity
could make the facility “the largest
vitamin E production facility in the
world,” Mr. Goppelsroeder anticipated.
