In January, 2012, Optomec announced the opening of its new and expanded Advanced Applications Lab and Product Development Facility in St. Paul, MN. The facility signifies the growth and market acceptance of Aerosol Jet technology and is a further commitment by the company to continue its leadership position in developing advanced applications for the Printed Electronics industry. The new facility is located in the Westgate IV Business Center at 2575 University Ave, Ste 135, in St. Paul, Minnesota. The building consists of 7600 square feet of office and general laboratory space and is utilized for advanced development of Aerosol Jet Printed Electronics Applications and new product engineering.
