Quantachroma Instruments Embarks on $500,000+ Expansion and Renovation/Upgrade of its Facilities

Boynton Beach, Florida, October 24, 2011 -- In response to a sharp increase in business and number of employees over the last 5 years, and to ensure manufacturing capacity for anticipated growth over the next five years and beyond, Quantachrome Instruments’ headquarters in Boynton Beach is undergoing a major expansion and renovation/refurbishment project.

Quantachrome current facilities in south Florida house manufacturing, laboratory services, training facilities and administrative offices. This half million dollar expansion / renovation of facilities includes a new engineering/development center, expansion and renovation of laboratory space, expansion of customer training facilities, expansion of its service/repair department, a new two-level warehouse, and renovation of its offices, meeting rooms and other common areas. Quantachrome moved to its current location in 1994 from Long Island, NY and has undergone several expansions over the years to meet growing facilities requirements as new products have been developed and new staff added to support the growing global customer base.

Mr. Scott Lowell, Quantachrome’s President, commented at the commencement of work extending the facility; “This is a very exciting time for Quantachrome having recently - and very successfully - introduced new state-of-the-art products, and now creating the necessary space to accommodate that rapidly growing business. We’ve been sure to include improved customer support in the physical growth with expanded service, training and laboratory areas. I believe it also represents a significant improvement for our now much larger staff in providing a more comfortable, modern environment, and a commitment to the local area as an employer in Boynton Beach.”
