Ispire Technology Inc. Announces Opening of New ISO- and GMP-Certified Malaysia Manufacturing Facility
State-of-the-Art Facility to Boost Production of Premium Vaporizers, Cartridges, Pod Systems, Disposables and Batteries for Global Vapor Industry
Los Angeles, February 5, 2024 – Ispire Technology Inc. ("Ispire" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: ISPR), a leader in the development and commercialization of vaping technology and precision dosing, announced the opening of its new ISO- and GMP-certified 31,000 sq. ft. manufacturing facility in Malaysia, which is poised to help expedite market entry for businesses seeking to enhance their cannabis and nicotine product lines.
Located in Senai, Ispire's facility recently secured certifications including: ISO9001:2015 Quality Management System; ISO14001:2015 Environmental Management System; and ISO13485:2016 Quality Management System Medical Device. Adhering to strict guidelines and standards, the Malaysian facility also encompasses a robust GMP-certified infrastructure, featuring a Quality Management System (QMS), Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs), Material Control and Traceability, Quality Control and Testing, Validation and Qualification, Cleanrooms, Environmental Monitoring, Compliance with Regulatory Requirements and Risk Management Protocols. In addition, the leadership at Ispire has committed to a continuous improvement strategy through regular audits, assessments and feedback mechanisms to optimize and enhance the facility.
"The inauguration of our ISO- and GMP-certified vapor device facility in Malaysia marks a significant milestone in our Company's journey," said Ispire Technology Co-Chief Executive Officer Michael Wang. "As the global vapor industry expands, our customers require a responsible and cost-effective partner to scale their operations, ensuring the production of safe, consistent and high-quality products. This facility adheres to established standards and reflects the dedication of our team in establishing a manufacturing facility that sets the worldwide industry standard for vaporized products."
Wang continued, "As we progress towards full production capacity, our owned-and-operated, ISO- and GMP-certified factory will enable us to realize profits from product assembly, a process that we previously outsourced. The absence of tariffs incurred during the assembly of products in Malaysia – in contrast to the 25% tariff from shipping finished products from China – is also expected to improve our gross margin and drive operational efficiencies that contribute to the overall growth."
