How We Began
Prinova’s roots go back to 1978, when Aaron Greenfield and Richard Thorp established Greenfield Thorp Company (GTC), an ingredient broker in Chicago, Illinois. The company grew quickly and in 1992, became Premium Ingredients International Ltd., a global ingredient source. In 2002, headquarters moved to the current location in Carol Stream, Illinois and regional offices opened on both coasts. The company entered the flavor industry and built an R&D application laboratory to provide technical support for product development, enhancement, and quality assurance. Next, Premium Ingredients became a one-stop shop, with value-added services including a particle-size reduction facility, an expanded product portfolio, and an entry into the animal nutrition market.
Who We’ve Become
In 2011, a global integration effort instigated another change in the company name, to today’s Prinova. Growth has continued with North American offices in Canada and Mexico, European offices in England, Benelux, France, Germany, Spain, and Turkey, a liquid blending facility, and an expanded R&D application laboratory. Our dynamic growth has led us to where we are today, but one thing has remained the same: the value we place on relationships. At Prinova, we look forward to continued growth through innovation, strategic planning, and relationship building.
