Southampton, Pa. — NewAge Industries has been growing substantially over the past several years. The company launched its AdvantaPure high purity products group 20 years ago, and demand for its tubing and Single-Use molded components has been rising ever since. The company is now hiring to service customers’ needs better and faster.
The COVID-19 pandemic resulted in a notable increase in silicone tubing and TPE (thermoplastic elastomer) tubing orders, as these products and others are used in ventilators, virus detection test kits, laboratories, and vaccine development. NewAge is busy – the company recently expanded at its southeastern Pennsylvania headquarters, purchased another building for manufacturing activities, and is in the process of hiring many new team members.
“As helpful as the unemployment bonus was for people who were laid off, it actually made it harder for us to hire,” said Ken Baker, CEO. “The CARES Act provided a boost that allowed many people to delay their job searches.”
Baker continued, “We’ve got signs up about job opportunities at our Southampton facility and our new manufacturing facility in Warrington. We’re advertising in newspapers and on job search sites, including Pennsylvania’s CareerLink unemployment site. We’re using social media, job fairs, referrals, and even a mobile digital billboard to get the word out.”
NewAge has several openings in Manufacturing and is also seeking candidates for positions in Engineering, Sales, Quality and Warehouse.
“We’re one-hundred-percent employee owned, and our benefits are amazing,” said Baker. “NewAge offers employee ownership as part of our retirement plan, profit sharing, a 401(k) plan with a contribution from the company, tuition reimbursement, paid time off, health insurance. And for most of our Manufacturing positions, we’re doing the training. Job seekers just need the desire to work with a growing, very successful American company that’s making products to help fight the virus.”
