Think of it as 67,000-square-feet of pure innovation: Two buildings, 11 laboratories, seven dedicated pilot plant processing areas — the only facility of its kind in North America, with fully functional concept-to-commercialization capabilities.
Located within Innovation Place, adjacent to the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon, Canada, POS is centrally positioned with quick access to both Western and Eastern Canadian markets, as well as the United States.
With more than $10 million in world-class equipment — including more than 1,000 assets (the majority of which are mobile) related to milling, mixing, extraction, refining, drying, evaporating, separation, and explosion-proof handling — POS is fully prepared to tackle almost any project. We’ve invested $4.5 million in new equipment over the past three years alone, and will be investing an additional $2.25 million through 2016.
