Our manufacturing team is led by Douglas Singer, Cerion’s Executive Vice President of Manufacturing. Mr. Singer has overseen the design, construction, accreditation and process improvements of industrial plants in Canada, England, China, and the U.S. during his 16-year career at Kodak and has been awarded three patents for precipitation-based nanomanufacturing processes. Doug’s team is comprised of senior engineers and chemical technicians, also from Kodak, who have established themselves as the global leaders in advanced materials manufacturing.
While the materials we produce are wide-ranging, our nanoparticle synthesis and manufacturing processes are centered on a robust plant design that supports a variety of product families through Lean Manufacturing principles. Additionally, Cerion employs a “Design for Manufacture” methodology, where our commercialization team works side-by-side with our scientists during all phases of research and development. This process ensures near 100% translation from the lab to the manufacturing environment in the shortest possible timeframes.
There is a general absence of affordable intermediate-scale nanoparticle manufacturing solutions available to industry today. That is why Cerion has dedicated pilot nanomanufacturing lines that produce volumes up to 250kgs that can support expansive field-testing by our industrial partners.
Most nanomaterials companies promote their manufacturing capabilities however, in reality, they cannot produce the volumes necessary to meet the needs of multi-national companies. At Cerion, we understand that the needs of our industrial partners aren’t measured in kilograms; they are measured in tons.
