FLAVORS AND INGREDIENTS
In 2009, Hixson completed work on an addition to accommodate a new spray dryer, blending towers and other improvements for the Devon, Kentucky facility of longtime client Givaudan. The efforts were conducted as part of a multi-million dollar, long-range, generational approach that Givaudan and Hixson embarked upon in 2004 to renovate and expand the plant. The plan is designed to maximize the 22-acre site where the plant resides, while preventing rework and related additional costs as the plant grows and its needs change. More than 120,000 SF of space has been modified or added. New 2-story process space, dry and cooler warehouses, offices, labs and employee welfare areas are just some of the additions that have been made.
