During the opening ceremony in August, speakers including Salvatore Atzeni, executive vice president and general manager of Horiba Scientific; Atsushi Horiba, chairman of the Horiba Group; N.J. State Senator Bob Smith; and Piscataway Mayor Brian Wahler highlighted HORIBA's continued growth and its commitment to the Garden State.

Instrument and poster displays representing the company's five segments — scientific, medical, semiconductor, automotive, process, and environmental - welcomed visitors into the new facility, which features an open-office format with natural light, open communication spaces, informal work areas, and numerous conference rooms for meetings and events such as global video conferences.

Tours throughout the opening event gave visitors a look at the 132,000-sq-ft engineering, manufacturing, laboratory, and cleanroom spaces, which includes more than 6400 square feet of new applications labs--all are designed to showcase HORIBA’s extensive product line, applications training capabilities, method development, and product demonstrations. The laboratories in the new facility are designed around specific sciences: earth science, life science, materials science, and industrial science. Each specializes in the sample preparation, analysis, and data reporting as appropriate for those techniques and their unique requirements. They are fully equipped with core instruments from various product lines that exemplify the techniques and measurements relevant to the application space.

Training centers, located adjacent to the laboratories, are available for customer training, as well as service training for the company's global network of affiliates and distributors.

“We spent nearly two years in the design, construction, and relocation of over 200 employees, inventory, manufacturing, engineering, laboratory facilities and data centers,” Atzeni said. “We look forward to having customers, local leaders, and students visit our labs, and take advantage of our technological capabilities.”

A key component of the move was to locate HORIBA's OEM facility in the same building as its main office, thus enhancing communication and efficiency. OEM has dedicated R&D and manufacturing space, including several cleanrooms (Class 100K, 10K, and 1K) for various production requirements.
