Irvine Scientific Expands Santa Ana, CA Capacity
Apr 12, 2011 | Posted in Corporate
Irvine Scientific, a member of JX Holdings Group, announced today the successful expansion of its production facility in Santa Ana, California. The expansion includes the addition of a new 23,000 sq foot warehouse facility adjacent to its current corporate headquarters. In addition to increased capacity, the new warehouse has been designed to support Irvine’s strategic supply chain initiative. This initiative is to provide for a more stringent control of raw materials. The new facility maintains animal-component-free raw materials in a fully temperature controlled, high pile storage environment. The additional capacity coincides with the Company’s move toward a more strategic supply of common raw materials to support its two manufacturing facilities. The added capacity and supply chain initiative will further advance Irvine Scientific's flexible customer-centric approach to media supply.
Raw material consistency, qualification, and control are vital in production of cell culture media and buffers for biopharmaceuticals, vaccines and other media used for sensitive cell culture in medical applications. This new warehouse is validated to support the supply, control, and management of raw materials used in animal-component-free (ACF) media production at the Santa Ana, CA manufacturing site.
