Novalung Moves Production Facility

Manufacturing and Company Headquarters Are Now Under One Roof

(PresseBox) (Heilbronn, ) Novalung GmbH's new production facility was officially inaugurated by its Managing Directors, Josef Bogenschütz und Dr. Georg Matheis, during a small party on September 12. Following the move of the company's headquarters to the Heilbronn Technology and Future Park "Wohlgelegen" in October 2010, the production facility has now also been moved from Oberstenfeld to the headquarters location.

After a planning and construction phase of nearly two years, the production facility with a total work area of 1200 m² was put into service in August. The new production area boasts a 500 m² ISO Class 7 clean room and meets all of the requirements of the US GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) standard. The clean room is fitted with state-of-the-art "real-time" monitoring, a so-called visualization system that controls the air in the clean room. The state-of-the-art technical control center ensures that the room humidity is optimized for energy efficiency. Rounding out the new facility are well-equipped laboratories and workshops and an optimized logistics and warehousing are for successful material flow.

The move is indicative of Novalung's continued growth. The clean-room manufacturing for medical devices, which was originally located in Hechingen, moved into a larger production facility near Heilbronn in 2009. The current move, too, was intended to increase the production capacity and finally bring administration and manufacturing under one roof. The new production facility not only offers state-of-the-art technology, but also optimal conditions for modern and attractive workplaces in a dynamic company.
