In March of 2009, NOW completed an expansion project which added a total of 54,000 square feet of new manufacturing and laboratory space to accommodate NOW's current and future growth.
The two-story expansion project added 27,000 square feet per level and houses a number of new facilities. The new levels include four new state of the art labs, including physical, micro, cosmetic, and food testing facilities. The addition of Real Time Lab Capability, along with a dedicated Prep lab allows NOW scientists the opportunity for increased environmental isolation during product development and testing. In addition, the expansion includes the construction of additional office space, with over two dozen new employee cubicles, five additional offices, and a dedicated area for photography and imaging.
According to Dan Mirjanic, NOW's Engineering Manager, "This expansion is ultimately going to enable a whole new level of technological advancement within the NOW organization." He added, "The entire facility will be fully cGMP compliant, and many measures have been implemented to accommodate both current and future growth."
In keeping with NOW's tradition of Operations and Engineering excellence, several design features have been utilized to ensure safety and organizational efficiency. These include, but are not limited to, the installation of epoxy-coated flooring, plastic-coated wall structures, and dedicated heating & air conditioning units.
Testing is Fundamental
The testing of raw materials, in-process formulas and finished products is an ongoing responsibility at NOW. Experienced, educated, and highly trained technicians rely on the latest technology to perform a variety of tests throughout the entire manufacturing process. These include Identity, Potency, Microbial, Organoleptic, and Contamination. And while each type of test is important in manufacturing quality products, Microbial testing is critical in ensuring that NOW products are safe and free of biological contamination. A technologically-advanced, in-house microbiology lab that allows NOW scientists to provide unparalleled quality microbiological control in a timely manner, using rapid method analysis.
NOW has made substantial investments in the development and staffing of our various in-house laboratories. Also, NOW is one of the very few vitamin suppliers capable of testing for microbes in-house, allowing for greater control standards.
