Tubing & Hose Manufacturer NewAge(R) Industries Celebrates 55 Years; Takes Stock of Its Achievements & Looks Ahead

Southampton, PA (PressExposure) November 18, 2008 -- 2009 marks the 55th anniversary for NewAge Industries, Inc., a manufacturer of plastic and rubber tubing and hose located in Upper Southampton Township, Bucks County, PA. The company’s products are used in industries such as appliance, pharmaceutical, biotechnology, medical, food and beverage, chemical, energy generation, laboratory, general industrial, recreational vehicles and equipment, packaging, maintenance, and many more,

Since noting its 50-year milestone in 2004, the company has expanded its manufacturing facilities and capabilities, introduced several new products for its high purity AdvantaPure(R) division, and developed new ways to enhance customer service and support.

Raymond Baker founded NewAge Industries in 1954. His son, Ken, took over daily operations in 1987 and has been instrumental in the company’s new directions. During the past five years, NewAge has greatly expanded its line of high purity products sold under the AdvantaPure name, constructed new manufacturing locations to increase production, and initiated an ESOP (Employee Stock Ownership Plan) for the benefit of both its team members and customers.

“It’s very exciting to celebrate this anniversary,” notes Ken Baker. “I’m pleased to continue with my father’s goal and thrilled to be doing well in these challenging economic times. We’ll keep looking forward, making improvements, and continuing to service our customers beyond their expectations.”

Interestingly the company has not needed to increase its staff much over the past several years, concentrating instead on production efficiencies, cross training, and continuing education. 55% of NewAge’s seventy-three team members have been with the company over five years; 30% for more than ten. NewAge Industries is proud of its strong history of promoting from within and rewarding long-term team members.
