Nat-Phen International Plans Wicomico County, Maryland, for New Plant

Nat-Phen International, a manufacturer of natural food additives for livestock feed, has chosen Maryland’s Eastern Shore as the site of a new manufacturing facility. The Quebec-based Nat-Phen expects to invest $10 million in the new facility over the next five years and create up to 25 new jobs in Wicomico County, Maryland. The site has potential for additional jobs once fully operational.

“Wicomico County, Maryland's central location, the commitment of Salisbury and Wicomico officials and the strong partnership with the economic development folks have made this decision easy,” said Yves Marchand, Principal of Nat-Phen International. “We're thrilled to be setting up operations on Maryland's Eastern Shore and look forward to a long and prosperous relationship.”

Nat-Phen produces plant-based, polyphenol additives to enhance the feed given to swine, poultry, cattle and other livestock and keep the animals healthy. The company’s Maryland operations will focus on the poultry industry. Nat-Phen expects to begin its Maryland manufacturing operations within the next 18 months, producing finished products for the U.S. domestic farming market.

"Maryland has a long, strong history of farming and manufacturing, and we’re proud to have Nat-Phen become the latest business to carry on that legacy,” said Governor Larry Hogan. “Maryland’s strategic location and access to highly qualified employees, as well as our thriving agricultural industry, will provide Nat-Phen with a competitive advantage to help the company expand into the U.S. market and attract new customers.”
