Cerahelix opens new manufacturing facility at the Bangor Innovation Center to support its growth! Ribbon Cutting Ceremony on Friday December 7, 2018 at 2 pm.
Founded in 2011, Cerahelix has combined DNA biotechnology and ceramic chemistry to create a new class of ceramic filters. Our ceramic picofilters quickly and efficiently transform wastewater to re-use quality water. Cost savings include less down time, decreased energy consumption, and higher water recovery. Our durable PicoHelix filters have broad applications across multiple industries that are seeking to reduce their carbon and water footprints.
Cerahelix is pleased to announce the opening of its new manufacturing facility in Bangor, Maine. The new facility is located at 40 Johnson St. in the Bangor Innovation Center, which supports small businesses during their ramp-up of production in their early growth stage.
“Bringing innovative products to market requires a strong team and the resources needed to transform scientific ideas into commercially successful products,” says Dr. Susan MacKay, Cerahelix CEO. “After building a strong research and development base at the Upstart Center in Orono, we are now investing in our future growth with the opening of this new manufacturing facility at the Bangor Innovation Center.”
The new manufacturing facility includes a clean room and nano coating equipment to ensure the high-quality production of the PicoHelix, the world’s finest ceramic filter.
With the move to the new manufacturing facility Cerahelix sets itself up to fill a growing global opportunity for technologies that promote sustainable utilization of resources. Purifying wastewater and recovering value added products from waste are just two of the many applications our filters have been used for that are integral to the emerging circular economy.
“Our new manufacturing facility, situated in the Bangor Foreign Trade Zone and within close proximity to the airport, will allow Cerahelix to expand globally. Our R&D department, located in Orono, will be able to focus on continually improving our filtration products to meet market needs,” remarks James Hutchinson, Cerahelix Production Manager.
