AVEKA Nutra Processing

AVEKA was founded in 1994 with the divestiture of 3M’s Fine Particle Pilot Plant. The original facility was setup as the 3M Toner Pilot Plant and converted to general powder processing in 1986. Willie Hendrickson managed it for 3M and then had the opportunity to acquire the space and equipment and establish it as AVEKA in 1994. The name AVEKA (ä vee’ kä) is derived from the Norwegian word “Avikka” which means to deviate (as to deviate, or depart from 3M). To our surprise we also found it is a Hebrew word for “dust.”
