The company also distributes a variety of plastic and metal fittings and clamps. Custom capabilities consist of heat-formed shapes, thermal bonding, special compounds, cut pieces, packaging, hose assemblies, and coiling. NewAge's AdvantaPure product line offers sanitary fittings, tubing, hose, assemblies, molded silicone components for single-use process systems, and asset management systems.

The technology provides dependable, highly secure identification while it reduces paper and error-prone handwritten records. NewAge sells its products globally through distribution and direct sales. Approximately 15% of the company's sales are attributed to exports.
