Hardy Animal Nutrition


Hardy Animal Nutrition (HAN)

A Magnus International Group Company

Hardy Animal Nutrition refines food industry feedstocks — such as fats, oils and greases — into natural feed ingredients for the dairy, cattle, poultry and swine industries. No company surpasses HAN’s ability to cost-effectively custom-make animal feed components from rigorously tested raw materials.

Our fully integrated production process allows us to maximize the use of our equipment to convert a diverse stream of feedstocks in a completely unique way. Our facility is located on 25 acres in Painesville Township, Ohio, where we also make natural waxes and alternative fuels under our Hardy Industrial Technologies brand.

Production, Packaging & Distribution

Hardy Animal Nutrition’s significant knowledge of the North American fats, oils and greases market uniquely positions us to explore and manufacture custom animal feed ingredients to the precise requirements of our customers. We have access to one of the most diverse lines of qualified raw materials in the business.

We’re closely linked to one of the world’s leading animal nutrition suppliers. Through this association, HAN is connected to some of the foremost animal scientists, production animal operators, and feed manufacturers and retailers. This helps us keep our finger on the pulse of market trends.

No organization in the animal feed industry can qualify and acquire feed ingredients and convert them into specialized, packaged goods within a single facility. Hardy’s animal nutrition products are delivered directly from our manufacturing site to wholesale buyers.

Animal Nutrition Quality Assurance & Safety

We apply standardized methods to improve the effectiveness of our technologies, increase animal feed quality, reduce the risk of errors and maximize the use of our supply chain resources.

In addition to meticulously screening inbound raw materials in our modern, on-premise lab, we also conduct an in-depth analysis of mid-process products and an extensive evaluation of finished animal feed ingredients to ensure they meet customer quality expectations.
