PI expands West Coast presence with Silicon Valley Tech Center

Aug. 6, 2021
The Fremont, CA-based Tech Center will house innovation creation, permanent product demos, and conference and training space.

Motion control, piezoelectric technology, and nanopositioning systems provider PI (Physik Instrumente; Auburn, MA) has opened a new Tech Center in Silicon Valley (Fremont, CA) as its most recent expansion in the U.S., with the goal of optimizing its support for and meeting the needs of new and existing customers.

The Tech Center houses the “It’s Possible” Lab as a secure environment to collaborate with customers on new innovations, as well as permanent product demos and conference and training space.

The Silicon Valley location will further PI’s collaborations with thought leaders in photonics, industrial automation, life sciences, and semiconductor markets, as well as several research institutions with which the company has existing relationships, explains Dave Rego, President of PI Americas. 

The Silicon Valley Tech Center joins PI’s existing sales and applications office in the Los Angeles area, while the Americas headquarters is outside of Boston, MA, with additional engineering and manufacturing facilities in Hopkinton, MA and Nashua, NH.
