Applied Energetics to relocate headquarters to UA Tech Park

March 31, 2021
The new strategic location will support the optics and photonics company’s anticipated future growth and provide greater capacity for research, product development, and production activities.

Applied Energetics (Tucson, AZ) will relocate its corporate headquarters to UA Tech Park, a research and technology park owned and operated by the University of Arizona (also in Tucson). The new strategic location will support the companys anticipated future growth and provide greater capacity for research, product development, and production activities. The move, expected to take place over the next 60 days, will provide the company with an ITAR- and laser safety-compliant facility totaling approximately 13,000 sq. ft., of which approximately 4800 sq. ft. is dedicated to a Class 1000 (ISO 6) Cleanroom. The company is benefiting from millions of dollars of capital investment made by the previous occupant, which was a global provider of lasers and laser-based technology for scientific, commercial, and industrial customers.

Applied Energetics joins over 60 other technology companies and organizations at the UA Tech Park, which provides the infrastructure for business, community, and the University of Arizona to connect and advance leading-edge technology. Located in one of Arizona’s fast-growing suburban settings on Tucson’s southeast side at Rita Road, the Park’s spacious campus encompasses 1282 acres and has 2 million square feet of space for high-tech offices, R&D, and laboratory facilities.

Gregory J. Quarles, Ph.D., CEO of Applied Energetics, commented, “Our new headquarters at UA Tech Park will enable Applied Energetics to grow to the next level, as we look to further our strategic plan of innovation, development, and commercialization of our proprietary technologies in the field of ultrashort-pulse lasers.”

Quarles added, “The Tucson region, and specifically UA Tech Park, is home to many companies in the technology and defense industry and offers a professional, well-educated workforce that will allow us to recruit top scientific, engineering, and commercial talent with laser and defense industry expertise. We are excited to bring our headquarters to this dynamic and collaborative tech park.”
