DES MOINES — Second quarter sales at PharmTech International, custom packaging company for cattle feed, poultry feed and other livestock feeds, are expected to be up 30 percent over the first quarter, a company executive said today. PharmTech also produces nutritional supplements for animal feed.
Steve Hartung, operations manager, attributed the increase to several factors affecting the animal feed and custom manufacturing and packaging industry. “People are becoming more optimistic about the agricultural economy as a whole,” he said. “Our customers need a partner who is in it for the long haul. They can see that we are here to stay and are bringing their business back to PharmTech.”
PharmTech provides custom manufacturing and pelleting for private-label animal feed products. It recently expanded its custom packaging capabilities by purchasing machinery that allows it to fill 5- to 25-pound polyethylene bags with livestock feed.
Dynamite Marketing, owner of PharmTech, has been producing animal feed and nutritional supplements for virtually every member of the animal kingdom for four generations. Dynamite is based in Meridian, Idaho, and is privately held.
