Apr 17, 2012
Carpinteria, California, April 17, 2012 — NuSil Technology LLC (www.nusil.com), the global leader in silicone materials for the healthcare, aerospace, pharmaceutical, aircraft and drug delivery industries, announces plans for a major facility and capacity expansion in Bakersfield, California. Construction of a third building is complete, and the site is on track to reach a total of seven buildings on the 15-acre campus.
“This facility expansion will result in increased employment opportunities across many functional areas at NuSil Technology's Bakersfield campus,” says Bill Klansek, Vice President of Manufacturing. “MorehouseCowles, a NuSil subsidiary, will be designing and building much of the equipment necessary to support the new manufacturing processes.”
The newly completed third building significantly increases the polymer processing capacity while adding additional warehousing space. The fourth building, at approximately 35,000 square feet, is now under construction and is scheduled for completion in September 2012. This new structure will become the center for Quality Assurance, Human Resources and Engineering, and will feature an enlarged QA testing laboratory and expanded office facilities.
Two additional manufacturing buildings have been designed and are quickly entering the permit stage. “The goal of this campus expansion is to increase plant capacity by three to four times over the next few years,” said Jim Yabsley, Vice President of Engineering.
