Gusmer Enterprises Expands In-House Production to Meet Rising Demand
To meet rising demand and continue to keep quality at the fore-front, Gusmer Enterprises undertook one of its biggest expansions in the last 25 years, in late 2009. This expansion was focused on its quickly growing line of fermentation nutrients, MicroEssentials™.
The expansion, which took the better part of six months is said to have increased Gusmer’s nutrient production capacities by more than 200%. The expansion included new production and packaging equipment to further automate and streamline the process. Most importantly, this expansion included Gusmer’s tablet line, which supports its tablet form, time-release nutrients MicroEssentials Complete-TR and MicroEssentials Boost-TR. Not only is the time-release aspect of these products a revolutionary change to how traditional nutrient additions are made, it is also a much more efficient way of dosing nutrients.
“Everyone knows that sequential nutrient additions are the best way to feed fermentations,” says Lars Petersen, Technical Director for Biological Products. “Complete-TR and Boost-TR use time-release technology to allow winemakers to make a ‘sequential addition’ in one dose.”
The steady level of nutrient application from Complete-TR and Boost-TR bring steadier fermentations as well as fewer cases of off characters such as H2S.
Gusmer Enterprises, Inc. has served the wine industry for over 85 years and is proud to continue to be one of the only US manufacturers of fermentation nutrients.
