Allegiant Health is committed to operating a state of the art facility to assure that product quality is maintained at the highest possible levels.
Assuring product quality requires an introspective review to identify any potential areas for improvement. This includes review of all system support, manufacturing, packaging, and QC Laboratory equipment.
The challenge presented, whenever upgrading a facility, is to prioritize the upgrades, implement them in a manner which assures continued compliant operations, and to do so with limited operational downtime.
A team of dedicated Quality, Engineering, and Manufacturing personnel worked together to develop a life cycle program for all support, manufacturing, packaging, and laboratory equipment. Equipment was tiered based on age, maintenance history, and potential for product impact.
Once tiered, the Tier 1 projects were addressed in 2022, with Tier 2 scheduled for 2023 and Tier 3 for 2024.
In 2022, Allegiant Health replaced several roof top HVAC units, added additional roof top HVAC units, added a backup HVAC unit to the QC Stability Room, replaced its fleet of compression metal detectors, installed a new facility compressor, purchased a new blister packaging line, ordered a new packaging bottle line, and resumed work to bring an additional coating machine online.
All upgrades were performed with full qualification, as applicable, and with minimal interruption of operations.
