Employee-owned specialty ingredients distributor Horn opened a new corporate facility in La Mirada, Calif., in September. The company also turns 50 this year.
With the completion of the new 120,000-sq.-ft. facility, Horn is joining its six business units–FoodTech, Nutraceuticals, Coatings and Building Materials, Essentials and Animal Wellness.
"I joined Horn when it started in 1961 and we pioneered the approach of providing our partners with transparency," CEO Gene Alley said in a press release. "Horn has grown considerably during that time, but we still retain that special bond of trust and openness with our principals, customers and colleagues. I'm thrilled to commemorate the success of the past 50 years by opening this beautiful new facility as we look forward to more milestones in the future."
