CARPINTERIA, CA — NuSil Technology LLC has completed the fourth phase of expansion at its facility in Bakersfield, CA. The newest building is NuSil’s fourth on the 15-acre campus and is part of a multi-year plan to expand to a total of seven buildings.

The building totals 35,000 square feet and will primarily be occupied by Quality Assurance (QA) and an enlarged QA testing laboratory. This will provide extended floor space for Research and Development (R&D) at another onsite location, which will more than double the footprint of R&D. In addition, the building will serve as a corporate center for the Bakersfield facility’s human resources and engineering departments.

NuSil also recently broke ground on the fifth phase of the expansion, with two new buildings and an additional 80,000 square feet of manufacturing space scheduled to be completed in 2013 and 2015.

NuSil manufactures silicone compounds for the medical implants, healthcare, aerospace and defense, electronics and engineering, and skincare markets.
