NewAge Industries recently purchased a building in Warrington, Pa., just a few miles from its southeastern Pennsylvania headquarters. The 90,000 sq. ft. facility was acquired as an additional manufacturing site, and renovations are underway to accommodate production equipment for AdvantaPure high purity tubing and Single-Use assemblies used in the manufacture of vaccines and other critical biopharmaceutical products.
NewAge Industries-AdvantaPure is working with CleanSpace Modular, LLC and Genesis AEC, Inc. on the design and construction of clean rooms to house tubing extrusion equipment, mold presses, assembly, packaging and inspection areas. NewAge Industries-AdvantaPure is expanding in order to increase its manufacturing capacity during this time of high product need relating to the COVID-19 pandemic and for the future.
Phase One of the renovation project has begun and involves preparing areas for clean room manufacturing and the installation of extrusion and injection molding equipment.
NewAge Industries-AdvantaPure, CleanSpace and Genesis are collaborating on the design of the new space. The goal is to maximize workflows and efficiencies, which involves the careful and specific input and output of materials, as well as proper personnel entrances and exits. Raw materials and assembly components will be admitted to the clean rooms at one area and finished products will exit at another.
“The new property will increase our manufacturing capacity a great deal,” noted Baker. “Demand for our platinum-cured silicone and TPE tubing and assemblies, used in vaccine development, ventilators and laboratories, has increased considerably because of the pandemic, and we anticipate that the need will continue.”
Renovations will be ongoing through this year and extend into 2021. NewAge Industries-AdvantaPure anticipates testing and validation of manufacturing equipment and environments to occur in 2021. The facility will be ISO 9001:2015 certified.
