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.
