New Facility Doubles Sterol Production Capacity
Eugene Science Completes Move to Larger Facility
LOS ANGELES, CA | Posted on December 4th, 2007
Eugene Science, Inc. (OTCBB: EUSI), a leader in the nutraceutical marketplace with its cholesterol lowering CholZero (CZ™) plant sterols, today announced it has completed its move into a newly constructed corporate headquarters and production facility in Seoul, Korea.
The move to the larger facility will enable the Company to double its CZ™ plant sterol production capacity to a maximum of 100 tons monthly. The higher production capacity will increase the Company's gross revenue capability to approximately $5 million per month, at a relatively minimal capital expenditure. The Company expects its increased production capacity to immediately enhance its ability to secure additional mass market orders for CZ™.
The new facility is approximately twice the size of the Company's former property and was custom built to meet Eugene Science's requirements with the Kyonggi-Do State Government subsidizing the vast majority of the construction costs as well as payments on the initial 20-year lease under local economic development programs. The Company's new facility includes 22,000 square feet of specially designed office, R&D and production space on six acres of land offering future additional build-out potential.
"The move into the new facility with higher production capacity represents a significant milestone in our growth strategy," said Seung Kwon Noh, Eugene Science's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "With awareness and demand for our CholZero™ product line growing, the company is well positioned for strong growth in 2008 and beyond."
The property is located in Jang-An Industrial Complex, Haw Sung City, Kyonggi-Do, about 40 miles south of Seoul and ten miles from Pyungtaek Port, an important and emerging industrial harbor servicing the capital city of Seoul.
Eugene Science expects to sell its former corporate headquarters office in Seoul with the proceeds to be used to reduce debt.
