Around the globe companies are producing products like paints, agrochemicals, adhesives and pharmaceuticals. To process and manufacture these products take specialized machinery that can take a liquid or slurry and break down particles and increase dispersion.  Many companies do not have the capital to invest in equipment or the space for a large machine, which is when they look for a contract processing company. It is also referred to as custom processing, contract manufacturing, or toll milling, involves a fee-for-service agreement.
