NewAge® Industries-AdvantaPure® Completes Plant Expansion for Additional Clean Rooms
NewAge has renovated existing space at its headquarters. The area now houses ISO Class 7 and 8 clean rooms for silicone tubing production, molded component operations, quality inspection and packaging for its AdvantaPure high-purity products.

"This was a big undertaking,"
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 square feet, with another 20,000 square feet renovated for additional warehouse space.
NewAge invested $10 million in the project. Engineering, design and construction was performed by AES Clean Technology Inc. of Montgomeryville, Pa.
"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™ platinum-cured silicone tubing and reinforced hose, Single-Use molded tubing assemblies, and BioClosure(R)
