Omax announces expansion

October 12, 2012

KENT, WA -- Omax Corp. designs, manufactures, markets and supports its advanced abrasive waterjet machines and accessories from its manufacturing facility and corporate headquarters in Kent, WA. Recently, the company announced the largest expansion of its campus since opening the Kent facility in 1999, adding a new 22,000-square-foot building that will extend its training, research and development, and engineering efforts.

Omax® Corp. is adding a new 22,000-square-foot building to its corporate headquarters in Kent, WA, that will extend the company's training, research and development, and engineering efforts

 

The company has experienced significant growth over the past several years -- making the expansion necessary. In fact, Omax Corp. was recently named, for the second time, to Inc. Magazine's 500|5000 list of the fastest-growing private companies in America for achieving 21% business growth between 2008 and 2011. 

According to Dr. John Cheung, CEO of Omax Corp., such growth can be attributed in part to the company's 2009 launch of its cost-effective Maxiem® JetCutting® Center Series, which makes abrasive waterjet technology more accessible. Another key growth contributor is the Omax team's commitment to continuously developing and supporting new and improved technologies that meet the diverse and ever-changing needs of manufacturers worldwide.  

 

The building expansion allows for a new dedicated training space, including a lab area, where Omax sales representatives, distributors and end-users can gain the highest levels of understanding and retention of the world's most advanced abrasive waterjet technology. The expansion will also increase the company's research and development and engineering capacities, allowing for better support of existing solutions and faster, more efficient development of new machines and accessories. 

 

The company plans to complete the building expansion this month, at which point the entire Omax campus in Kent will encompass 130,000 square feet of space spread across three buildings.
