Seven Grade C clean labs are up and running – a recent project completed by Endor, a Meptagon Group company. The labs were built for a pharmaceutical company that specializes in short half-life radiopharmaceuticals for PET and SPECT applications and is involved in developing new cancer therapies. The first step in this two-month project was preparing a detailed plan of the components in the cleanroom compound (filtration units, ceiling, lighting, air intake stations, HPL paneling, etc.). It was a step-wise process which required us to work in pulses and on a tight schedule, maneuvering around the customer’s round-the-clock manufacturing activities. In practice, this meant that with each stroke another area in the compound was demolished and rebuilt and all the lab equipment had to be moved (including lead protective hoods). Next, the newly rebuilt labs passed a partial qualification.
Before construction could begin we were required to take down ceilings, walls, and floors, and carefully dismantle doors and anterooms. We then built new walls, renovated and painted existing walls to match cleanroom design, added HPL paneling to the walls, installed a clean ceiling, antistatic PVC floor, pharma-grade windows and doors as specified by the customer, constructed paneled walls and motorized doors in the radiopharmacy lab, installed airlocks and door interlock systems, supplied and installed ESCO fume hoods with blowers, laminar tables manufactured by Endor, and finally qualified the labs and the equipment.
Our customer was fully satisfied and even expanded the project scope by 20%.
This week Meptagon Group convened an internal marketing conference for Endor Systems 2009, IN.P.C. and Magam Safety.
The conference showcased the group’s professional capabilities in a variety of areas of activity.
Over 100 employees came to the business compound in the Kiryat Gat industrial park to learn more about the group activities:
- The Project Management division provides general contractor, maintenance management, and facility maintenance services.
- The Engineering Division provides process planning and custom engineering services.
- The Advanced Technologies division operates in the areas of security, access-control, facility control, and software.
- The Contracting Division executes projects in mechanics, pipe work, power, instruments and control.
- Endor Systems supplies industry and cleanroom equipment, as well as inspection services for compliance with cleanliness standards.
- IN.P.C. supplies a broad range of top-of-the-line equipment and control components, and Magam Safety supplies custom products to the defense industry.
During the conference, we shared success stories of completed projects, studied the Group’s unique knowledge, and formed professional collaborations between the divisions and domains.
We are often asked: “How do you maintain a high level of quality in your work?” Well, over and above our commitment to allocating the resources it takes to maintain quality, and our persistent search for areas to improve, Meptagon Group has developed a unique process-control mechanism that encompasses:
- acceptance and qualification of clean pipe systems and high-purity chemical systems
- full supervision of the welding process by qualified supervisors
- boroscopy to test the internal quality of the welding in low-purity pipe work
- testing clean-air particle levels in high-purity clean pipe work
- checking for helium leaks in high-purity clean pipe work
- checking humidity in high-purity clean pipe work
- checking oxygen level in high-purity clean pipe work
- checking valve seal (leaks across the seat) in high-purity clean pipe work
- planning and coordinating non-destructive tests: VT, RT, PT, MT, PMI in industrial pipe work installations
Apart from our professional services, which we provide directly rather than by a third party, we educate our teams and appoint domain-specific professionals. We also are able to provide analytical tests and highly-specialized instruments, but most of all we have the unmatchable experience and human capital that it takes to manage such projects professionally and to the customer’s satisfaction.
Magam Safety, a Meptagon Group subsidiary, has developed a uniquely smart product : self-sealing rubber. The product has been implemented in military vehicle fuel-tanks to improve safety. If, for example, a bullet of up to 20mm penetrates a protected fuel-tank, the rubber self-seals the opening keeping the fuel-tank intact and the mission on the road. Flexible fuel tanks have been implemented in armored personnel carriers, drones, gas stations and mobile refueling services, and even on ships. We are able to provide a custom-designed, safe and effective, solution that is adaptable (put it anywhere), sturdy (withstands loads of up to 620 gallons), simple (make field repairs), durable (up to 15 years), and makes dynamic use of space. These properties have made Magam flexible fuel-tanks the solution of choice in the design and engineering of ground vehicles, watercraft, and civilian aircraft. Now, isn’t that nifty?

Did you know that vehicle number plates can be used track vehicles en-masse? In a License Plate Recognition system (LPR) characters and numbers appearing in a photograph are optically recognized. Optical character recognition (OCR) is effectively implemented in many areas: vehicle access-control, paid parking, enforcement and collection, to name a few examples. LPR can also be found in systems for securing facilities, offices, and buildings. Companies commonly use LPR to optimize their operating efficiency and increase security at their sites. Usually LPR is integrated with infra-red (IR) security cameras capable of snapping a shot of a number plate any time of the day or night. This kind of identification can also be applied to stamping employee time clocks, access-control for authorizes persons, and more. LPR systems track and record movement of individual vehicles as well as groups of cars, and its ability to pinpoint an individual or a group of individuals can boost the efficacy of any security system.

How does one navigate a complex project? Be professional, observant, and plan every detail in advance! Sano Hod Hasharon challenged us to a complex project: We would have to find a way to transport hydrogen peroxide from the terminal where tankers unload to a 30,000 liter storage tank, and then further down the line distribute it between three raw-material production tanks. Our first step was the system analysis and engineering design, next we prepared a specification and detailed plan, and finally executed and operated the new system. We set up a mechanics team to do all the pipe work and install equipment, and put our electricity and instrumentation teams on the job as well. Manufacturing and handling 35% hydrogen peroxide are a dangerous undertaking requiring close attention to detail throughout the process. Our control department will, in due course, interface with the facility’s control systems, and we have also been awarded the contract for routine mechanical maintenance of this facility. We gratefully acknowledge Sano Ltd. for their professional cooperation in this project and their ongoing vote of confidence.
Over the past few months, Meptagon Group management has been exploring the possibility of investing in ‘Magam’ company, pioneer of the defense industry (established in 1934) and manufacturer of specialized rubber and defense-industry products, such as anti-g suits for aircraft crew, advanced fuel-tanks, parachutes to name a few.
Once the investment was found to be compatible with Meptagon’s business development goals, we addressed itself to leading a restructuring process that would also restore the factory to full production. The company collaborating closely with the IDF to solve the challenges of the future combatant while maintaining the highest levels of quality and safety.
We proudly welcome ‘Magam’ to Meptagon Group, and feel confident that together we will see our new member grow and prosper.
The solar department in Meptagon’s construction division has started work on the new Energix Group PV solar-energy fields that will be generating 70 megawatts of electricity. Work on this project includes the solar panels and their infrastructure at nine solar field sites in Israel.
We started last week in Omarim, the site near the suburban town Omer. We are responsible for driving in and installing infrastructure of thousands of solar panel through our contractor ‘Makor’ Energy Solutions Ltd.
We continue to promote an environmental approach to project management and invest in renewable energy and in sustainable technologies.
