To meet product demands, this leading confections manufacturer invested in a capacity expansion project to convert and automate existing equipment.


Foth designed a system to convert an existing gum-making extruder to a gum base. This engineering project was completed in two phases to allow for continuous production.


Foth’s automated design solutions improved repeatability, product quality and efficiency. Ingredient costs were also reduced and the operation’s carbon/structural/energy footprint was enhanced.
