Alan E. George is the Pharmaceutical Product Line Manager for ILC Dover’s Containment Products. He is actively involved in developing applications of flexible containment for various types of process equipment by working directly with pharmaceutical manufacturers and ILC’s engineering staff over the past 13 years. These designs are then manufactured by ILC to support the production of potent compounds. George’s background over the past 29years with ILC has ranged from design through management of programs and the introduction of new products for both Department of Defense and commercial uses where softgoods are designed to meet high reliability requirements such as those facing the pharmaceutical industry today. The designs being implemented are based on technologies developed through ILC’s roles for such products as all of the space suits used by NASA since Neil Armstrong first walked on the moon, airship and aerostat envelopes, and the landing impact bags for the Mars Pathfinder program.
