The workweek announcement follows news about a 35,000 sqm facility to be created in Turkey for the production of prefabricated modular cleanroom solutions
NAYA Life Sciences has decided to enact a four-day workweek, on the heels of opening its new 35,000 sqm facility in Turkey. The global provider of cleanroom bioprocess technology provides a variety of solutions, both conventional and modular cleanrooms.
"We have recently decided to play our part in creating a new way of working: as of 2024, we are introducing a four-day workweek! The idea is not a new one, but it seems to have come under greater consideration since the COVID-19 pandemic generated a broad re-evaluation of how we work, including a great work-from-home migration and hybrid office implementation."
By giving our employees more control over their time, the company expects to achieve increased productivity and motivation, avoid employee burnout, increase efficiency across the business, as well as to obtain a competitive advantage for hiring new staff
The fundamental goal of introducing a four-day workweek is to improve the quality of life of employees. NAYA explained that by working fewer hours overall and having three full days off, staff will have more time for personal priorities like spending quality time with family, friends and pets, being able to provide care, attend doctor appointments, invest time in personal development and education or simply have more time for travel, hobbies or for household management.
But there will be benefits for the company too they explained. "By giving our employees more control over their time, the company expects to achieve increased productivity and motivation, avoid employee burnout, increase efficiency across the business, as well as to obtain a competitive advantage for hiring new staff."
At the end of January, NAYA opened a new production facility in Izmir, Turkey, to serve the growing demand for prefabricated modular cleanroom solutions. This site has an advantageous geographical position, close to current and potential new customers.
The 35,000 sqm facility produces all components for NAYA Modular Cleanrooms, employing over 100 experienced technical and administrative staff. It is fully automated with the latest equipment and technology.
“The decision to create a new production facility for modular cleanrooms’ components was made in early 2021, following the increased use of modular cleanrooms by our clients," explained Miroslav Tonovski, CEO at NAYA Life Sciences. "Turkey was chosen for a number of reasons: the presence of strong local partners and our previous experience of working in the country, the proximity to a number of our markets and also convenient logistics, considering we are rapidly developing and actively moving into new markets."
The company plans to gradually increase capacity and increase the number of specialists working on site.
The new facility is a hub for NAYA Modular Cleanrooms, serving customers directly in Europe, US, and the Middle East. Splitting the production means that the company can easily meet the increased demand and serve its customers more efficiently.
NAYA Life Sciences is a joint venture company between PPG Cleanrooms, a global provider of turnkey cleanroom solutions and Elomatic OY, a leading engineering and consultancy group of professionals, developing and providing top technical know-how for clients with life sciences cleanroom requirements.
