;Description: Preparations at
NewAge Industries are underway to
expand and renovate 40,000 square
feet of space for more cleanroom
suites, inspection areas and warehousing. The company is using an existing
area at its headquarters and manufacturing facility located just north of
The need to expand arose primarily
from the success of NewAge’s Advan-taPure product line. AdvantaPure’s
tubing, hose and molded components
are manufactured for high purity, Sin-gle-Use biopharm and pharmaceutical

sampling and storage.
The area within NewAge’s building was
previously rented to other businesses
for several years—it even housed the
local fire department, free of charge,
while the firehouse was undergoing
renovation—and more recently had
been used for NewAge’s inventory overflow. The space will consist of 20,000 sf
of five ISO Class 7 cleanrooms and an
equal amount of area for warehousing.
Demolition of existing structures within the expanse was completed last fall,
and then followed by painting, utility
work and other preparations.
NewAge expects to be able to move equipment from its existing cleanroom manufacturing areas to the newly renovated
space during the second quarter of 2017.
Because the company has multiple tubing extruders and presses for molded
components, the move-in will occur in
phases, with one piece of equipment
being shut down, moved, validated and
restarted at a time. There will be no
production stoppages or shortage of
products due to the plant expansion.
This is not the first time NewAge’s
building has undergone major changes.
In recent years the company invested
in new lighting, new windows, floor resurfacing, new motors for its manufacturing equipment and air conditioning
units, a new roof and a rooftop solar
panel array consisting of over 4,000
panels. These panels currently produce
half of the company’s electricity needs.
