Hamilton Storage Technologies Opens 52,000-Square-Foot Facility in Franklin, Massachusetts
News Jan 22, 2013
Hamilton Storage Technologies has opened a new Franklin, Mass. facility to accommodate growing business for its automated sample management and storage systems. The facility will serve as the Sample Management division's headquarters and the East Coast competence center for Hamilton Company, a global leader in the design and manufacture of liquid handling, process measurement, robotics, and storage solutions.
The facility, which will replace two separate facilities located in Hopkinton and Milford, Mass., includes 30,000 square feet of manufacturing space with a customizable, open floor plan to handle increased product demand.
“The company selected Franklin primarily because of its proximity to biotechnology communities and skilled talent pool in the greater Boston area,” said Matt Hamilton, Vice President of Hamilton Storage Technologies. “By more than quadrupling our space, we can bring all of our operations under one roof and still have plenty of room to grow, while providing a more collaborative and productive work environment for our employees.”
“The local town government created a designated “economic opportunity area” and this permitted us to negotiate valuable tax incentives, plus the location is ideal for both our customers and employees with all the great amenities nearby,” said Hamilton.
“Hamilton Storage Technologies’ new state-of-the-art facility is located in a highly visible gateway to Forge Park at the intersection of Forge Parkway and Route 140,” said Bryan Taberner, Director of Planning and Community Development in Franklin. “Hamilton is exactly the type of high-technology company that will provide Massachusetts residents with livable-wage jobs in the future, and keep our local, regional, and state economies healthy.”
“Our new facility will allow for efficient production of our innovative product development, including our new ultra-cold automated sample storage system, BiOS," says Hamilton. "BiOS is the only product that provides robotic handling and retrieval systems to ensure that samples stay close to -80 ᵒC while being picked,” he added. “These systems can automatically register, store, select, and deliver millions of samples to clinicians and researchers with almost zero human intervention or temperature changes.”
