NewAge Industries AdvantaPure(R) Enters the Next Phase of Renovations at Its New Tubing Plant

eTradeWire News/10648358
SOUTHAMPTON, Pa. - eTradeWire -- 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."

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

"Our designer and contractor, Genesis AEC, and their employees understand the impact of this project. They know we're involved with supplying COVID-19 vaccine manufacturers with the tubing and Single-Use assemblies required to produce the millions of doses ordered. With that said, we are significantly ahead of schedule and under budget with superior clean room facilities," said Calloway.

The 90,000 sq. ft. building, sitting on seven acres, will house several individual clean rooms for extruding AdvantaSil(R) high purity silicone tubing and braid-reinforced hose and AdvantaFlex(R) biopharmaceutical grade thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) tubing. Most finished tubing will be transported to NewAge's Southampton operations 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.
