With the continued expansion of the Denis Brinicombe Group across the sales brands of Brinicombe Agri, Zintec Agri and b2b Nutrition the Group has appointed Janet Preece to the new role of Compliance Manager as part of the Technical Department.

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 Shobden 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.

Zintec has upgraded and re-launched two important products in their animal health range. The successful Imutien Colostrum packs have been enhanced with additional nutrients to ensure newborn calves and lambs get the best possible start in life. The rebranded Imutien Extra Colostrum is available in 1kg sealable tubs which supply 50 lamb or 5 calf doses.

The VitaCalf birth products have also benefitted from an enhancement. Supplied in 10 calf packs, VitaCalf Capsules or VitaCalf Premium Paste can be used on farms with a history of digestive upsets. Whether the product of choice dictates that two capsules or one syringe is used within 8 hours of birth, either can be administered with confidence.
