AdvanceTEC, the market leader in cleanroom design, construction and mission critical process integration announces a strategic investment for their “Cleanroom Innovation Center” in Clayton, North Carolina. This new facility will deliver prefabricated and modularised cleanroom solutions to biotechnology clients throughout the region as well as the US.
This investment will elevate AdvanceTEC’s “Cleanroom IP” platform by enhancing offsite construction strategies optimising safety, schedule, quality, and time to market requirements for their clients.
Key to developing this space is ARCO, an industry leader in facilities that support advanced manufacturing, logistics and sophisticated supply chain operations.
“This project and partnership is a huge win for the life sciences industry, the Triangle, and Johnston County. It’s rare to have two innovative design/builders on the same project, even more so working together in partnership to support the incredible growth in the region. We’re very excited to bring this one to the market,” noted Matt Hohorst, VP of ARCO Design/Build’s Raleigh-Durham Division.
This new investment in our future will add an offsite fabrication strategy to our toolbox
AdvanceTEC is excited to extend their presence in North Carolina. This expansion is a direct response to our growing customer base and the demand for prefabricated and modularised cleanroom solutions across the industry.
“We are thrilled to build this innovation centre to collaborate with leading ECPM’s, trade-partners, vendors, and clients. ARCO and AdvanceTEC are aligned to serve the biotech and cleantech economy in North Carolina. ARCO is the preferred builder for many of our clients in the region, so it was a natural progression for AdvanceTEC to select them for our own operation,” said Bryan Phelan, AdvanceTEC managing partner, and director of customers. “We are respective market leaders in what we do, we have seen the quality of ARCO’s work, and this strategic investment will continue to differentiate ourselves from our competition.”
John Burton, AdvanceTEC’s founder/owner and director of technology said: “Our cleanroom innovation centre is a strategic investment for our business. The data shows that prefabrication speeds up schedule without sacrificing our employee’s safety. Knowing this, we are going to bring construction activities out of the field and into our facility no matter what size. Our team is constantly evaluating ways we can innovate, and this facility is another way AdvanceTEC can bring certainty of cost, schedule, and time to market for our clients.”
“We have continually driven ourselves at AdvanceTEC to improve safety, quality, and productivity on every project,” said Drew Fischer, one of AdvanceTEC’s Director of Operations. “This new investment in our future will add an offsite fabrication strategy to our toolbox and will be the newest chapter in our story. We expect this facility to provide the ability to accomplish all three improvement goals as well as provide limitless opportunities for growth in the future.”
AdvanceTEC’s cleanroom innovation centre will not only serve biotechnology clients, but will provide cleanroom solutions for companies in pharmaceutical, nanotechnology, semiconductor, and clean technology industries. They are looking to break ground in March and plan on having the facility operational by the end of 2022.
