Global ingredient supplier Prinova has acquired Lakeshore Technologies, a contract manufacturer with ingredient processing expertise in micronizing, blending, repackaging, sifting, and metal detection and removal.

Founded in 1997 in Norton Shores, Michigan, Lakeshore Technologies has partnered with some of the largest companies in the food, pharmaceutical, and nutritional industries at its 75,000-square-foot facility. 

The acquisition will add new processing technologies (e.g. ceramic jet milling, hammer milling, and inline blending) and engineering and system design expertise to Prinova's capabilities, as well as a dedicated psyllium husk manufacturing line to service the cereal and bar industries.

"Our objective is to seek out strategic partners who bring additional value-added services to meet the needs of our customers. This acquisition expands our capabilities, brings talented people to the organization and provides agility for our customers within the industry,"​ said Don Thorp, president of Prinova. 

"This partnership provides Lakeshore Technologies with the investment needed to build an even more sustainable operation, hire new staff, and build upon its expertise,"​ added Jason Sikkenga, Prinova general manager of ingredients and particle enhancement divisions.
