Integrated Microwave Technologies, a producer of advanced digital microwave systems within the Vitec Group’s videocom division, has opened a new engineering and manufacturing facility at the International Trade Center in Mt. Olive, N.J.
IMT—which serves the military, aerospace and government, broadcast and sports and entertainment markets—said the move will help the company further its strategy of meeting the increasing demand for wireless video solutions.
The new facility encompasses 65,000 square feet and features full functionality under one roof, including research and development, application engineering, manufacturing assembly, electronic testing and customer technical support. IMT’s new location consolidates and expands the company’s three previous sites located in Carlisle, Pa.; Haverhill, Mass.; and Hackettstown, N.J. into a single facility. As a result of the consolidation, a new manufacturing layout will allow IMT to better manage its workflow methods, and optimize its procedures and processes, the company says.
IMT currently has a workforce of approximately 140 employees, and the expansion is expected to create more high technology positions. “IMT’s move to Mt. Olive will increase the company’s employment by up to 16 percent over the next year and will generate much needed good paying jobs in New Jersey,” said Steve Shpock, IMT’s president.
