Biamp Systems has relocated its HQ to a larger facility in Beaverton, Oregon, having outgrown its previous, 40,000 sqft manufacturing facility. The new 70,000 sqft building on Gemini Drive will accommodate an expansive manufacturing floor and will double the size of Biamp’s training facilities. The company’s global expansion has also precipitated the addition of several new staff members in the manufacturing, engineering and marketing departments for US and international locations over the last 12 months. Biamp president Steve Metzger commented: “We have continued to experience strong demand for our technologies as the global economy sought to recover. We know that distance conferencing systems and Biamp’s entry into the advanced paging and voice evacuation market will be key drivers of growth for the company. With our need to add new people and increase production capacity, we made the decision to expand our corporate headquarters and manufacturing facilities here in Beaverton. Our people are our greatest asset, and the new facility allows us to assure that our growth in development and production can remain under one roof. The new Gemini location is a resource that allows Biamp to develop and produce products, and train our customers on our rapidly growing suite of unique products that make up the next generation of networked audio systems.” The company highlights the continuing popularity of its Audia and Nexia solutions for distance conferencing, as well as the potential of its newly-launched Vocia critical paging solution for airports, shopping malls, college campuses and other public venues.
