NewAge Industries , Southampton, PA, has set up a companywide Priority Response Team to expedite orders from customers — from receipt of the order through shipping — involving COVID-19 (coronavirus)] support components.
Because the pandemic is rapidly changing normal practices and routines, NewAge, which has been recognized as a life-sustaining business, is monitoring the CDC and local government requirements. The company’s operations team is fully up and running, continuing to manufacture tubing, hose, and components to service customers in critical industries.
According to the company, its inventory of stock products is at high levels, and its raw materials supply is stable. Tubing components for COVID-19 applications involving virus detection test kits, lab work on antibodies, and respiratory equipment have recently shipped to customers.
NewAge is supplying tubing, hose, and single-use assemblies for COVID-19 vaccine development, test kits to diagnose the virus, therapeutics to treat its resulting conditions, medical equipment such as ventilators and hospital beds, and personal protective equipment, to name a few applications. The company says that these are expedited with priority status.
