400th Syntegon Capsylon sold in North America

Congratulations to Thorne Research! Thorne recently purchased the 400th Syntegon Capsylon encapsulation machine sold in North America.

Thorne moved its corporate headquarters and nutritional supplement manufacturing operations from Idaho to South Carolina in 2018, bringing with it a truck load of Syntegon GKF capsule fillers. They have a long-standing history with Syntegon, having purchased a variety of models from a GKF 1500, to a GKF 1400, as well as several rebuilt machines in the past. Since moving to their state-of-the-art 270,000 square foot Summerville, SC location, they have been exclusively purchasing GKF Capsylon machines. They find the Capsylon’s, both with and without the slide-gate feature for sticky/challenging products, to be the most robust machines on the market and able to meet their high demands for manufacturing.

“We are honored to help Syntegon achieve this milestone, one which demonstrates the value of their machines to quality manufacturers such as Thorne, and the outstanding service and support provided by Syntegon,” said Thomas McKenna, Thorne’s Chief Operating Officer.

Thorne was founded in Seattle in 1984 and moved to Sandpoint Idaho in 1990, where it grew until its latest relocation to South Carolina. From sourcing ingredients through final manufacturing and packaging, Thorne prides itself as an industry leader in quality backed by science.
