The Omnipure production complex is a state-of-the-art facility constructed and organized to implement the manufacturing techniques that make the Omnipure products the finest in the world. The first phase, completed in 1990, greatly expanded production capability and brought our entire production line under one roof.
As a rule, Omnipure has tried to base its manufacturing policy on a vertical model. When possible, raw materials are purchased and processed on-site and then tested to ensure quality control. The processed materials are then delivered to the appropriate area of the facility for use in overall manufacturing. As an example, raw polypropylene is purchased in bulk directly from a supplier. The plastic is then delivered to our injection molding room where filter components and filter bodies are formed. After molding, the components are delivered to the appropriate assemply line for final processing. Other components and processed elements are delivered to the appropriate assembly line for final processing. Other components and processed elements are similarly handled from raw material to finished product. By processing raw materials in-house, Omnipure is able to maintain constant control of the process which helps ensure quality control.
With the advances in our production line, we found it necessary to add our own on-site tool and die department. The capabilities of this department have enabled our engineers to develop, produce, and test new concepts, components and working models for the next generation of Omnipure filters.
Pursuant to Omnipure’s commitment to quality the company invested hundreds of thousands of dollars in a modern laboratory where the testing of new and current products is conducted. Highly sensitive equipment measures the strength of body designs as well as the filtration characteristics of various media.
The lab has also been indispensable in the development of new filtration media. The staff has helped to development several media series including the entire Omnipure carbon block line and the Aquabond™ series of filtration media.

Phase Two of construction was completed in August of 1995. Virtually doubling production capacity, this phase was necessary to meet the growing demand for Omnipure products. While many facets of the production line remain unchanged, the expanded capacity enabled us to cope with the increased volume represented by the three new filter bodies added to our family -- the K-Series, the Q-Series, and the E-Series.
Phase Three was a major expansion of our facility to accommodate additional carbon block manufacturing. This line is primarily automated and enables us to precisely control the manufacturing process to produce extremely consistent and efficient carbon blocks. The versatility of our carbon block line has made it particularly attractive to clients who need custom product that has a unique performance requirements. Currently, OmnipureBlocks™ can be configured to address a combination of conditions from the traditional taste and odor concerns to cysts, lead, scaling and other conditions. In the future, development of additional combinations will be available. Blocks are available for insertion in any Omnipure filter body or for existing standard cartridge replacement. Omnipure also offers a custom block program.
The process of building and maintaining a truly modern production facility is an ongoing endeavor. We realize, however, that the success of our company is reliant upon our ability to manufacture the highest quality products possible and deliver them on time. With Phase Four of the Omnipure production complex already on the drawing boards, we are positioning ourselves to meet the needs of our customers for the next decade and well into the 21st century.
