HORIBA Scientific moved from its Edison, New Jersey location, where it had been situated for well over 30 years, to a new facility in Piscataway, New Jersey, with all departments finally settled in our new home by May of 2018.
Aside from the age of the old building and its outdated infrastructure, it could no longer accommodate our growth in space requirements or personnel. In addition, the OEM group was located in another building which was very inefficient. The new building, located near pharma and technology industry hubs, and several major universities, consists of 132,000 square feet of office, engineering, manufacturing, R&D, laboratory and cleanroom spaces, including more than 6,400 square feet of new applications labs. These labs (Earth Science, Life Science, Materials Science and Industrial Science) are designed to showcase HORIBA's extensive product line, applications training capabilities, method development, and product demonstrations. The OEM area now has dedicated R&D and manufacturing space, including several cleanrooms, including Class 100K, 10K and 1K.
Overall, the new building has an open-office format with bright, natural light, open communication spaces, informal work areas and numerous conference rooms for both formal and informal meetings, including global videoconferences.
