Here’s our latest Ngoma update from Tyson Huffman, our Acting Chief of Production:
We have made large strides in our goal of producing 30,000 pads a month for our pilot phase. To make the production site ready for inspection by the Bureau of Standards we fixed many sanitation issues. We patched our floors and ceilings. We painted inside and out. The color scheme has let’s everyone know in town that we are operating in our building. Bright and vibrant colors were used and the final results look fantastic. What do you think?
A completely sealed room was needed for pad assembly. We knocked down walls, replaced doors with windows and added a sliding glass door. Lights and electrical sockets were added. Stainless steel tables were manufactured to ensure that our assembly surface is as sanitary as possible. We put in our pad assembler, scales, arbor presses, sachet sealer, and heat stamp.
Only two things remain to put us in full pilot scale manufacturing. Our UV sanitation boxes have been manufactured and will be installed early this week. We also need to create positive pressure within the assembly room to ensure that no insects or dust can enter the room. We have this equipment and it will be up and going this week.
All of our equipment is tested and we’re ready to go!
