PENNSAUKEN, N.J. — Puratos Group has continued its expansion in the United States with the opening of its headquarters and Innovation Center in Pennsauken on Sept. 7. The previous U.S. headquarters was located in Cherry Hill, N.J.

A $10 million investment has resulted in a 23,700-square-foot facility designed to bring the company’s management, sales, marketing and technical teams closer together in a collaborative environment.

The major focus of the expansion is the Innovation Center, where customers may access the very latest baking industry equipment, expertise and training, in addition to in-depth research into international trends.

“Helping our customers be even more successful with their businesses is behind our continuing expansion here in the United States,” said Daniel Malcorps, chief executive officer of Puratos Group. “With this new Innovation Center, we want to inspire our customers with better ideas based on consumer expectations and support them in the development of their products and help them solve technical challenges. We are dedicated to anticipating and responding to consumer changes and their evolving expectations through a process of constant innovation. Thus, innovation is at the heart of everything Puratos does.”
