Kern will invest in a 20,800 sq. ft. expansion that will more than double its current manufacturing and research and development departments.
“We need to make sure we have adequate room for the growing demand we are experiencing for our existing product range and also the growth we anticipate from new product lines that started rolling out this year,” stated Derek Kern, President of Kern Laser Systems.
The expansion will allow Kern to add additional employees and equipment as needed over the coming years. Kern hopes to be moved in to the new area by this fall. This expansion is phase 1 of a 2 phase project. Phase 2 will see its technical support and office buildings expanded and is anticipated to start in the next 3-5 years.
