Quality Vision International (QVI) has broken ground on a 16,000-square-foot manufacturing building on its campus. This construction marks the last phase of a five-year, 37,000-square-foot expansion of the company’s global engineering and manufacturing headquarters.

Chief Operating Officer Keith Polidor says, “Construction of this new building will complete our plan to add the necessary manufacturing space for our expanded product lines, enabling us to serve the growing market for our metrology system products around the world.”

Beginning in 2014, the company added 12,500 square feet to its assembly building, followed by a 4,200-square-foot addition to its South machine shop and a 4,000-square-foot addition to its customer center showroom. The campus occupies more than 275,000 square feet of manufacturing space, employing over 300 full-time staff.

“This additional capacity is a vital step forward as we continue serving our growing base of global manufacturing customers,” says Senior Vice President R. Stephen Flynn. “As precision and quality grow ever more important to consumers, our products become more important to manufacturers. This new space will allow us to build the larger and more sophisticated measurement systems that our customers need to improve their production processes.”
