NewAge Industries AdvantaPure Begins Renovations

The preparation of floors, ceilings, exterior walls, electric service, and plumbing lines is nearly finished at NewAge Industries AdvantaPure’s new Warrington manufacturing facility. With the operational infrastructure approaching completion, additional clean room construction can move forward swiftly to help reach the goal of making and shipping tubing.

“We purchased the building over a year ago,” said Ken Baker, CEO. “There was a lot of planning, engineering, and permitting that had to take place. It took time to order and receive the extrusion equipment, all of which is U.S. made, and we’re glad to be moving past the prep work. The construction team has built out some of the clean rooms and is working hard to complete others.”

Craig Calloway, NewAge’s Director of Engineering, noted that the company was able to move some of its initial completion dates forward.

The 90,000 sq. ft. building, sitting on seven acres, will house several individual clean rooms for extruding AdvantaSil® high purity silicone tubing and braid reinforced hose and AdvantaFlex® biopharmaceutical grade thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) tubing. Most finished tubing will be transported to NewAge’s Southampton operations, just a fifteen-minute drive away, for post-production work involving Single-Use tubing assemblies.

Tubing extruders and other support equipment, purchased months ago and in storage at NewAge’s headquarters and at the new facility, will be set up in stages as areas of the renovated building are readied. Equipment testing and validation of the environments is expected to take place during the coming weeks; the facility will be ISO 9001:2015 certified. Following completion of the project, the company anticipates tripling its production capabilities for silicone and TPE tubing.
