August 20, 2008 - Effective immediately, the Vancouver headquarters has moved to a 2 acre property in Richmond, just minutes from the Vancouver International airport. The new, state-of-the-art 41000 sq ft (3,809 sq m) facility is triple the size of the previous building, which allows for more rapid growth. It provides excellent infrastructure, larger manufacturing and production spaces, bright and modern offices and over 160 parking stalls.
"The new facility suits the company’s needs perfectly, providing the space required for immediate expansion and the flexibility for additional future growth," says Vladimir Tucakov, Director of Sales and Marketing at Point Grey. "Purchasing this new building is a significant milestone for Point Grey. It has been amazing to watch our growth over the years, from a tiny office in 1997 to a leading supplier of quality industrial cameras and components throughout the world."
"Moving to the new facility directly supports our plans for future growth in North America, Europe and Asia," adds Tucakov. "We are excited about having significantly more manufacturing and production space, which allows us to have larger clean room, assembly and testing facilities; room for future SMT line expansion; and an enhanced prototyping area. Customers can expect to see substantial benefits from the move and expansion such as increased production capacities, faster response times, and enhanced customer support."
