Harman Professional has begun construction on a new 50,000 square-foot Technology and Signal Processing Business Unit Facility in Salt Lake City, Utah.
The new building will replace the existing Sandy, Utah operation and serve as headquarters for more than 160 employees from the BSS Audio, dbx, DigiTech and Lexicon brands, Harman Professional’s Systems Development and Integration Group responsible for the development of HiQnet networking software and the Harman Corporate Technology Group overseeing company-wide R&D for all brands.
Located in the River Park Business Centre in the South Jordan area of Salt Lake City, the new technology centre will include departments for research and development, product development, hardware and software engineering, sales and marketing as well as a new Harman Professional training centre.
“Utah has been a hotbed for innovation and technology as well as the home to Harman Signal Processing brands for over 30 years and we are proud to say it will continue to be so for years to come,” states TJ Smith, general manager of Harman Professional Signal Processing Business Unit. “We are building a strong foundation for the future as this new facility represents our commitment to ongoing investments and in our operations and our team.” The first stage of occupation for the new facility is slated for December 2013.
