Additional Clean Room Manufacturing Suites
two years of planning,
now using new
clean rooms to produce platinum-cured silicone tubing,
molded components and Single-Use molded tubing assemblies.
The products are manufactured for the biopharm,
pharmaceutical and other clean application industries.
“This was a big undertaking,” noted Ken Baker, CEO of
the employee-owned business. “We needed additional
clean rooms to manufacture more high-purity tubing and
components to meet our customers’ needs, but we didn’t
want to add a random room next to our other clean rooms.
This new area was designed and built from the ground up,
with a vetted, product flow-through design for raw materials,
extrusion, molding, quality inspection and packaging.”
The ISO Class 7 and 8 clean rooms were built in existing
space at the company’s headquarters in Southampton, Pa.,
just north of Philadelphia. The manufacturing suites and
inspection areas total 23,000 sq. ft., with another 20,000
square feet renovated for additional warehouse space. NewAge invested $10 million in the project.
“Our intent was to move and validate our manufacturing
equipment in phases to avoid any production stoppages or
product shortages. We accomplished that, but we also
decided to add more extrusion equipment and mold presses.
This equipment expansion will help us meet our customers’
current and future product demands,” said Baker.
NewAge/AdvantaPure’s key customers who have
inspected the new clean rooms have approved them for
production of their orders involving AdvantaSil™ platinumcured
silicone tubing and reinforced hose, Single-Use
molded tubing assemblies, and BioClosure® container closure
