Amongst our R&D equipment, we have at your service the following instruments for product formulation, reverse engineering, testing and analysis:
We know brand and image development is sometimes time absorbing and you do not know where to begin. With just an idea of how you want to position your brand and increase your corporate image positioning we can help you design eye - catching labels, technical information and visual aids. Our graphic designer can offer you several concepts and designs for your private label. Once chosen you can move to decide which type of label and packaging art you want on your products.
Labels are available in the following formats*:
*Label type availability is restricted accordingly to volumes.
Regarding packaging options, we can also help you define which package better suits your needs. Amongst the standard containers available we have the following:
*Having 2 extrusion blow molding machines we even manufacture our quart and gallon containers.
However we have the capability to fill a wide range of containers and packaging options, even your proprietary system.
Our manufacturing facility is state-of –the-art and recently built under the most modern design and sustainability principles for liquid blending manufacture.
Today we produce 264,200 gallons (1 million liters ) per month. Depending on a combination of different size containers our capacity may go up to 660,500 gallons (2.5 million liters) per month.
Moreover, if needed, our facility is ready to increase the quantity of mixing tanks from 21 to 40, and more filling equipment to produce up to 1, 320, 860 gallons (5 million liters) per month, leading to a total annual capacity of almost 16 Million gallons (60 million Liters) per year.
Our production capacity is supported by:
Raw materials and inventory control: Our raw material warehouse and our finished good warehouse are completely automated. Barcodes and WMSmart portable terminals assure FIFO- First In First Out control.
Shop floor control: Each raw material, including high volume materials, is automatically weighed (XP-WEIGHING-2000) when dosed into the mixing tanks to assure zero errors and proper chemical measurement according to product specifications.
Water Quality: The water used in our production processes is treated with a reverse osmosis system. Water quality is monitored everyday.
Blending Process control: The physical and chemical parameters are monitored during the process to keep product standards as defined in every work order.
Filling process control: We assure the quality control in our filling, labeling & bottle sealing process by meeting our engineering specs.
Information Technology: Our processes are integrated by an ERP System (Enterprise Resource Planning) for sharing and transmitting information with a high degree of speed and reliability.
Occupational safety: our processes and the infrastructure of our plant are designed to meet high safety standards and occupational wellbeing. Our staff is continuously trained and certified to meet these standards.
Our quality assurance laboratory operates under the ISO/IEC 17025: 2005 standard which specifies the general requirements for the competence to carry out tests and/or calibrations, including sampling.
Moreover, in addition to the conventional equipment of our industry among our lab equipment we have available the following tools to assure the concentration, viscosity, color, fragrance and every other specification in each of our formulations:
*As a common practice we perform tests of antimicrobial activity to our disinfectant products. (Only available for México & Latin-America).
At Cyan Labs we understand the importance of having sustainable operations in today’s world. That is why our facility is designed to implement green standards that will ensure your products are manufactured in an environmentally friendly way. Among other green practices, these are a few of our green management initiatives:
We continuously improve our green management standard. As of today we already have implemented the ISO 14001:2004 standards within our entire operation as our ISO 14001:2004 Certificate verified by Normex proves it.
Located at Anillo Periférico Km. 37 Col. Moisés Sáenz Apodaca, Nuevo León, México C.P. 66613, Cyan Labs has a strategic location in the north of México. Our manufacturing facility is located at just 150 miles from Laredo, Texas.
For our international customers, we work with International Commercial Terms (INCOTERMS) as defined by the International Chamber of Commerce. INCOTERMS are worldwide used to define the type of agreement buyer and seller have in the purchase and shipping of products internationally. By using INCOTERMS, international trade becomes easier and clearer for the parties involved, thus increasing trust between partners.
Moreover we consider our location to be strategic since we can also be the manufacturing partner of those companies which seek to produce their private label product line locally at their target market. For those companies introducing their cleaning product lines into the Latin American market, we are sure we can aid you in reducing your carbon footprint by manufacturing closer to your end users.
