Horiba Scientific moves to larger facility, more space for labs and production

July 2, 2018
Continued growth has led Horiba Scientific to move to a new location in Piscataway from its Edison, NJ location.

Continued growth has led Horiba Scientific to move to a new location in Piscataway, NJ, from its Edison, NJ location, where it had been located for over 50 years. The new location was selected because of proximity to major freeways; major customers in pharmaceutical, academic, and technology industries including Rutgers; and major metropolitan areas, including New York City and Philadelphia.

The new facility comprises 132,000 sq ft of office, engineering, manufacturing, laboratory, and cleanroom spaces, approximately double the previous facility size. Over 6400 sq ft of new applications labs can be used for applications training, method development, and product demonstrations.

The laboratories are grouped into four main applications areas, each specializing in the sample preparation, analysis, and data reporting as appropriate for those techniques and their unique requirements. The OEM facility is now located in the same building as the main office, unlike its past location in a separate facility. These areas have dedicated R&D and manufacturing space, including several cleanrooms [Class 100K, 10K, and 1K] for different production requirements.

"We are very proud of this new facility,” said Salvatore Atzeni, Executive Vice President and General Manager of Horiba Scientific. “We spent nearly two years in the design, construction and relocation of over 200 employees, inventory, manufacturing, engineering, laboratory facilities and data centers”
