Zintec Agri relocates to meet increased customer demand

Farm animal nutrition business Zintec Agri has grown its turnover by 20% over the past six months, and will soon be relocating to cope with soaring demand.

The firm, which became part of the Denis Brinicombe Group last year, manufactures and supplies feed and animal health products to farmers across the UK. Currently operating out of its Shobdon site in Herefordshire, it will be relocating to Denis Brinicombe Group’s main site at Crediton, Devon, by the end of the year.

“It’s very exciting to be investing in growing the Zintec brand and boosting production, as well as improving our customer service by bringing all the operations under one roof,” says managing director Keith Greig. “We will be investing over £150,000 in our Crediton plant to cope with the extra tonnage, and have increased our national sales team significantly to improve coverage and the level of on-farm support.”

Zintec, which produces bagged and bucket minerals, proteins and concentrates; as well as liquid feeds and animal health products, complements Denis Brinicombe Group’s business by strengthening both direct farm sales and merchant trade. “It is a great brand with good products, which we have enhanced and improved through consistent sourcing of raw materials,” says Mr Greig. “By merging the two businesses we have enhanced the growth of B2B Nutrition and can offer an extended range to our customers.”

Chief executive James Brinicombe will be managing the new investment and Zintec’s move to Crediton. “By relocating the manufacturing site we will improve security of supply to meet growing demand, as well as improve delivery times through transport efficiencies,” he says. “We have also introduced a new freephone number, to make farmer orders even easier to place, wherever they are in the country.” The new number is 0800 592023.
