Process instrument manufacturer VEGA has opened a new $50 million headquarters and advanced manufacturing facility for its growing Americas operations. Located in Mason, Ohio, the new site is centered around a 230,000 square-foot complex that houses the company’s business operations, advanced manufacturing and production facility, and state-of-the-art training center and lab.
Based in Germany, the company has recently grown rapidly with radiometric sensing technology but also makes a well-developed line of magnetic instruments and accessories for level measurement and process control. Some products combine both radar and magnetic technologies. “This facility will enable us produce a wider range of instrumentation in the U.S. than was possible before,” said John Groom, president of VEGA Americas.
VEGA employs over 2,100 people worldwide, 1,000 of whom work at its headquarters in Schiltach, Germany. For more than 60 years, the company has provided measurement solutions for chemical and pharmaceutical plants, the food industry, drinking water supply systems, sewage treatment plants, landfills, mining, power generation, oil platforms, ships and airplanes.
