CFB expands with new solar-powered cleanroom

24-May-2022

Cleanroom Film and Bags has expanded its manufacturing footprint with a facility powered by 440 solar panels

Cleanroom Film and Bags (CFB), a division of C-P Flexible Packaging, has expanded its manufacturing footprint with a new solar-powered and ISO-certified facility in Placentia, California.

This expansion allows the company to meet increased demand for high-quality, certified cleanroom packaging for a growing customer base, while remaining true to CFB's 100% American-made commitment.

The cleanrooms have environmental monitoring climate systems and a fully equipped laboratory

The modernised facility features ISO-certified cleanrooms with environmental monitoring climate systems and a fully equipped laboratory. CFB's sterile packaging is manufactured within controlled cleanrooms, processed from raw materials to a finished, vacuum-sealed product without ever leaving the cleanroom environment.

Ten extrusion blown film lines are integrated with the cleanrooms' converting equipment. This unique process maintains a superior level of cleanliness.

Sustainability

The new facility also highlights CFB's commitment to sustainability. With 440 solar panels, the plant is one of Orange County's largest solar deployments, generating one-third of the cleanroom facility's energy.
