NewAge(R) Industries-AdvantaPure(R) Looks to Hire Dozens of People as It Expands
By: NewAge Industries Inc.
The COVID-19 pandemic resulted in a notable increase in silicone tubing and TPE (thermoplastic elastomer) tubing orders, as these products and others are used in ventilators, virus detection test kits, laboratories, and vaccine development. NewAge is busy – the company recently expanded at its southeastern Pennsylvania headquarters, purchased another building for manufacturing activities, and is in the process of hiring many new team members.
"As helpful as the unemployment bonus was for people who were laid off, it actually made it harder for us to hire," said Ken Baker, CEO. "The CARES Act provided a boost that allowed many people to delay their job searches."
Baker continued, "We've got signs up about job opportunities at our Southampton facility and our new manufacturing facility in Warrington. We're advertising in newspapers and on job search sites, including Pennsylvania's CareerLink unemployment site. We're using social media, job fairs, referrals, and even a mobile digital billboard to get the word out."
NewAge has several openings in Manufacturing and is also seeking candidates for positions in Engineering, Sales, Quality and Warehouse.
