We employ technology, procedures and equipment aimed at reducing waste and consumption and, by limiting our production of greenhouse gases, we both help the environment and keep our costs down
Rochester, N.H. (PRWEB) September 25, 2008
Phase II Medical Manufacturing today announced it has completed the expansion of its Rochester, N.H. facility, expanding its manufacturing and production capacity by 50 percent, while keeping a focus on energy efficiency and recycling.
As part of its overall expansion project, which included the addition of a second clean room space and a floor dedicated to managerial offices, Phase II used high efficiency fixtures and upgraded its previously existing lighting and HVAC systems. This initiative will reduce the company's annual energy use by 77,762 kilowatt hours, according to figures provided by Public Service of New Hampshire (PSNH). As such, Phase II's facility upgrades will result in a 5,366 gallon reduction in the amount of oil required to generate electricity and a concomitant reduction in CO2, or greenhouse gas, by 86,083 pounds a year.
Phase II's larger clean room space has allowed the company to expand its world-class manufacturing capabilities, while keeping costs down and conserving energy. Additionally, the implementation of a new Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system will allow the company to significantly reduce paper waste associated with documentation. And, nearly all the scrap materials resulting from Phase II's medical manufacturing production are accepted by local recycling programs. Phase II is currently developing a partnership with a Massachusetts-based company to enable the recycling of products with higher SPI codes typically deemed "unrecyclable" in the greater central New Hampshire area.
Phase II strives to remain below standard energy use guidelines, while providing sophisticated, consistent, and enterprising products and services to its constantly growing customer base.
"Phase II continues to expand because we excel at meeting the needs of our customers while proudly working to set 'green' examples in New Hampshire and throughout the medical manufacturing industry," said Adam Prime, president, Phase II Medical Manufacturing. "We employ technology, procedures and equipment aimed at reducing waste and consumption and, by limiting our production of greenhouse gases, we both help the environment and keep our costs down," Prime said.
Phase II contracts with companies to produce medical devices in its state-of-the-art temperature-, humidity- and particulate-controlled clean rooms certified to Class 100,000. In addition to expert manufacturing, Phase II's engineering staff can assist with the design of new products or enhancements to existing products. Once a design is finalized, the company engineers and implements the most cost-effective and efficient manufacturing process possible, and also offers device testing, pad printing, packaging, sterilization oversight and shipping services.
