Alltemp Inc. Reconstructs and Upgrades Production Facility
Improvements to support launch of energy saving refrigerants
WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif. — Alltemp Inc., a manufacturer of refrigerants designed to deliver significant energy and financial savings, announced that it recently completed construction and several critical upgrades for the mass production of its products.
The new facility is located in Roseburg, Oregon, where Alltemp has increased accessibility to highways and logistics service providers. Improved distribution to end users was a major motivation for the revamp, as Alltemp has incurred tremendous interest and demand from large domestic and international commercial accounts, particularly due to the energy savings that Alltemp refrigerants provide and the final phase out of R-22 (Freon). Data also supports that Alltemp® refrigerants will extend the life of refrigeration hardware and systems.
“The completion of this manufacturing facility is a milestone for us in many ways,” said Alltemp CEO Bill Lopshire. “During the process of upgrading our plant, we identified a litany of needs we wanted to address so that we could compete against the largest producers of refrigerants.”
Additional key benefits and upgrades include:
- A ventilation system that improves air circulation around the production lines and effectively draws out access heat, which, in combination with other facility improvements, allows for better ambient temperature and humidity controlled production environment.
- An integrated, state-of-the-art, digital testing system has been installed and the production line has a random test feature to ensure quality control.
- Since Alltemp® refrigerants are manufactured under the supervision of the inventor and his team, which includes the plant manager, several necessary site design improvements were incorporated to ensure that the team could work hand-in-hand and maximize product standardization of this unique Freon.
- The open layout allows for better segregation of production stages and departments, while the loading dock’s four 14-feet high garage doors are seamlessly integrated with the interior bays, to improve the shipping manager’s ability to receive raw materials and ship finished goods, resulting in more efficient material flow and increased quality control.
- A barcoding system and centralized automated shipping system are underway. These systems will increase production/inventory visibility and quality control, by reducing human errors, enabling multiple location shipments from one centralized system, while providing the inventory control specialist with real-time production, inventory, and shipping data/updates.
“The upgrades to our production process and quality are significant, and went far beyond the list provided in the release,” said Lopshire. “Although we were down for a good part of this past year, we are now finally ready to deliver on large orders, and are very excited as we head into 2020.”
