NuSil Expands Capacity

April 19, 2012

NuSil Technology LLC recently announced plans for a major facility and capacity expansion in Bakersfield, CA. Construction of a third building is complete, and the site is reportedly 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,” said 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 reportedly boosts polymer processing capacity while adding additional warehousing space. The fourth building, at approximately 35,000 sq ft, is now under construction and is scheduled for completion in September. This new structure is expected to 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.
