In late February, Michigan Sugar Company announced that it had acquired the assets of AmCane Sugar LLC, a cane sugar refiner and specialty sugar manufacturer based at Taylor, Mich. “The addition of AmCane will broaden Michigan Sugar’s product offerings and allow it to meet its customers’ requirements for a variety of specialty products and organic sugars,” MSC stated in a press release. Am-Cane’s Taylor refinery and its packaging and blending operation in Toledo, Ohio, will increase Michigan Sugar’s revenues by more than $60 million and its sugar sales volume by nearly 15%, the company added.
AmCane employs 100 workers at its two facilities and refines a broadline of specialized cane sugar products, including liquid sucrose, VLC liquid sugar, evaporated cane juice, large/coarse grain sugar and boiled brown sugar.
“Acquiring AmCane allows us to expand our value-added offerings,” stated Mark Flegenheimer, president and CEO of Michigan Sugar. “Adding cane sugar products to our product lineup will allow us to better serve our customers while maintaining a keen focus on value-enhanced products.”
