In 1998, AnMar established an office in Shanghai, China. It is responsible for purchasing, logistic services and public relations with AnMar's Chinese vendors. Over the years, AnMar's Shanghai office has developed into a reliable sourcing network. Most of AnMar's products are produced in GMP and/or ISO certified plants. AnMar regularly visits these manufacturers to audit their plants and strengthen relationships. AnMar has established an excellent reputation and working relationship with its vendors, thanks to the contributions of its Shanghai Office.
AnMar’s manufacturing facility provides blending, granulation and milling services. AnMar also offers formulation services from concept to completed product. AnMar can utilize its raw materials or customers can send their raw materials for processing. Product formulation, development services & pilot trials are also available.
AnMar's philosophy is to offer superior service, excellent quality and competitive pricing. AnMar's service ranks among the best in the industry due to immediate product availability and order processing. Orders are processed on the day of receipt to guarantee prompt delivery to customers in the New York, New Jersey and Connecticut area. As a means of continual improvement in service, internal service audits of shipments to customers show that 19% of shipments are received by AnMar's customers in the tri-state area on the same day, 46% of shipments arrive the day after order placement and 27% of shipments arrive within 48 hours. AnMar also receives 100% delivery accomplishment from many of its customers.
AnMar sources the majority of its products from major producers which it has bought from for many years, thereby assuring customers products of not only consistent chemical quality but also physical properties such as color, particle size, flowability and bulk density. AnMar maintains its competitive ability through streamlined logistics and large purchasing power. This allows AnMar to have some of the lowest costs in the industry, which it passes along to its customers.
AnMar International Ltd. provides contract blending and granulation services. AnMar can develop a formula to a customer's specifications or it can utilize its expertise to duplicate an existing blend. For all proprietary blends, a non-disclosure/confidentiality agreement can be provided.
