There’s a new factory for Noel Rojas.

On Jan. 1, Rojas and Brandon Hayes, who owns Renegade Cigars in Richardson, Texas, will open New Order of the Ages (NOA) in Estelí, Nicaragua.

The 5,000-square-foot factory will serve as the new home for Rojas’ Guayacan brand as well as other brands Rojas makes for others. The name from the factory comes from the Latin phrase novus ordo seclorum.

According to a press release, the partners at Tabacalera Aromas de Jalapa, Rojas’ former factory, separated in late 2014.
