Military Design Wins Prompt Plant Expansion at Synergy Microsystems

11/13/2002 - Synergy Microsystems, a veteran innovator of advanced VME and CompactPCI computing technologies, announced the completion of a 7,000 square foot expansion of its San Diego design, test, and manufacturing facilities that promises to more than double the firm’s output capacity. The expansion is in response to several recent design wins in the military and aerospace markets. The facilities' expansion has taken place against a backdrop of Synergy’s continued growth despite the slowed economy.

Growing the company’s total facilities to over 39,000 square feet, this latest expansion provides lab and office space for increased engineering staff, additional burn-in and harsh environment stress testing equipment, and a streamlined physical workflow throughout the facility. The expansion accommodates an ongoing company-wide 40% increase in engineering staff. Key areas, particularly software and hardware development, have been augmented, and more than eighteen new workstations have been added for additional quality assurance and production testing activities. An enlarged staff of field application engineers is bringing vital expertise directly to the customer, raising the bar for service and support within the industry.

"We’re very excited about this expansion," said Tom Powell, Synergy CEO. "It’s the result of a continuous investment in the resources and R&D needed to offer leading edge technology, and it is especially gratifying to see that investment paying off quickly in superior customer service and in new COTS design wins."
