Gerbig Engineering Company Cleanroom Solutions

To Meet Growing Customer Demand, Gerbig Engineering Opens a New AireCell® Softwall Production Facility

AireCell SoftsideIn response to demands for cleanrooms that can be easily constructed and reconfigured, Gerbig developed the AireCell system for modular cleanroom construction rather than relying on existing industry designs that were elaborate and complicated. As AireCell expanded its capabilities through the addition of new aluminum extrusion profiles, the ability to provide an interlocking structural ceiling created a demand for easy-to-assemble softwall cleanrooms that could be flat shipped to customers.

Softwall cleanrooms lend themselves to many applications and have the benefit of being an economical and quick solution for companies that don’t want to make the initial investment to a traditional hardwall cleanroom. Since softwalls are easily converted to hardwalls at any time, investing in a softwall first makes great business sense for some companies.

To accommodate our philosophy of meeting customer needs, we have opened an AireCell Softwall production facility in Burnsville, Minnesota. The facility is designed to expedite the delivery of our softwall cleanrooms. It houses a RF welder in addition to our aluminum extrusion manufacturing operation that allows us to manufacture curtains and extrusion parts under one roof.

Our customers have become accustomed to receiving their orders much quicker than they could from any other vendor. This dedicated facility makes sure that orders ship out quickly while maintaining the high quality standards our customers expect.

"The flow of the facility is perfect, it allows us to streamline the delivery process. We literally receive the order at the front office, fabricate curtains at the beginning of the assembly line, then package extrusion kits. We have shipped orders the same day received in some cases.," says Tom Kaiser, Plant Manager. The plant also houses our "solutions center" where we build custom pass-thru's and other cleanroom accessories.

Gerbig not only leads the industry with product innovation, we also lead with product delivery. Most cleanroom companies want you to fill out long RFQ forms before exposing or discussing pricing, whereas GEC exposes our pricing on our website for customers to budget and compare instantly. We offer fast delivery, easy installation, superior design and excellent customer service.

Gerbig Engineering has been providing cleanroom solutions for 28 years. Fred Gerbig founded Gerbig in 1985, and since then the company has expanded its services and capabilities to meet the demands of the rapidly evolving cleanroom industry.
