Intellivation Completes Expansion of Manufacturing facility to provide production solutions for R2R Vacuum Web Coating Systems

Loveland CO, December 29, 2023: Intellivation announces the completion of the final manufacturing expansion phase of its headquarters to over 50,000 ft2 in December 2023.  Mike Simmons, President & CEO of Intellivation emphasizes the significance of the expansion, stating, “This expansion will significantly increase our capacity while improving efficiency by streamlining work flow in the manufacture of our state-of-the-art roll-to-roll vacuum coating equipment.  Along with our earlier expansion in late 2022, we are now equipped to provide the complete solution for our R2R and vacuum solutions in-house, positioning Intellivation as a uniquely vertically integrated manufacturer.  In 2023, we have already manufactured a number of vacuum chambers used in our production systems.  We are currently finalizing the manufacturing of the chamber for our new R2R600 Lab machine which will be installed in a newly dedicated Lab and will house our metrology equipment.  This new space will have room for two dedicated R2R Lab systems which will help us better support our customers who are developing new products and investigating new technology areas.”

Intellivation moved to a new state of the art facility in 2020 designed specifically for manufacturing vacuum coating equipment used in a wide range of industries and a variety of applications. This latest expansion adds 28,000 square feet to the existing facility.

Intellivation is pleased to announce a new manufacturing expansion which was completed in late 2022. “This expansion will significantly increase our capacity for manufacturing and support our machine shop work flow most specifically. We will be adding some exciting new equipment to our machine shop which will allow us to do complete vacuum chamber machining in-house.” says Mike Simmons, Intellivation President & CEO. “Installing capacity, particularly in our machine shop helps us control our build time for our vacuum chambers and roll to roll coating equipment. Like everyone, dealing with logistics and supply chain changes has made us rethink our project planning and manufacturing flow. This expansion supports the changes the team has implemented to support our customers and commitments and helps insulate us from supply chain fluctuations.” Intellivation moved to a new state of the art facility in 2020 designed specifically for manufacturing vacuum coating equipment used in a wide range of industries and a variety of applications. This expansion adds 5,000 square feet to the existing facility.

“This expansion along with the recent and continued growth of our team will only reinforce our ability to deliver to the high standards our customers and the industry expect from Intellivation. Our innovative team, system designs, and controls are constantly improving to provide the best possible solution for depositing precision quality coatings using a range of deposition technologies”, says Mike.
