CARPINTERIA, CA — NuSil Technology LLC, a leader in silicone materials for the healthcare, aerospace, pharmaceutical, aircraft and drug-delivery industries, announced plans for a major facility and capacity expansion in Bakersfield, CA. 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.
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.
