Upgrades engineering and sales operation for backend semi business

Moves image capturing technology into high tech campus in Eindhoven, The Netherlands

MT. LAUREL, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 15, 2022-- inTEST Corporation (NYSE American: INTT), a global supplier of innovative test and process solutions for use in manufacturing and testing across a wide range of markets, including automotive, defense/aerospace, industrial, life sciences, security, and semiconductor, today announced it has opened a new office in Fremont, CA to better serve customers through streamlined operations and lower operating costs for its backend semi business.

“During 2021, we consolidated manufacturing for our backend semi technologies into our Mt. Laurel, New Jersey facility to improve operating costs and centralize operations.  However, we had key engineering and sales talent in our California location who are critical to our growth.  To support their capabilities to maintain the high-level of service our customers have come to know, we relocated this team into an upgraded office environment near our previous manufacturing facility.  We are committed to the team as they foster new product development, demonstrate prototype products to local customers, build new client relationships, and access key suppliers,” commented Nick Grant, inTEST President & CEO.

“We have also upgraded the facilities for our recently acquired digital streaming and image capturing solutions business in the Netherlands and have relocated our design, sales and manufacturing facility to the High Tech Campus in Eindhoven.  We expect this move to provide better efficiencies, enable greater visibility with international pioneering technology firms to drive our presence in the industrial imaging market, and allow us to capitalize on the advancements being made in artificial intelligence,” added Grant.

High Tech Campus is the technical innovation epicenter of The Netherlands and home of the AI Innovation Center where technology companies, platform and service providers, and research and educational institutes come together to collaborate and create.
