Aerotech expands operations in RIDC Park

Aerotech engineering firm will occupy another RIDC Park building in O’Hara.

Aerotech, the engineering firm along Zeta Drive in O’Hara’s RIDC Park, will open a second location in the business park along Route 28.

The company will take over Alpha Manor II, a 20,000-square-foot building, and add about 50 to 60 employees in research and development at the site. Aerotech has signed a five-year lease for the location.

Aerotech designs and manufactures motion control, positioning tables/stages and positioning systems for customers in industry, government, science and research worldwide.

There are about 380 people on staff at the Zeta Drive headquarters.

“O’Hara has been our corporate headquarters since 1974, and this additional space is needed to support strong growth in our business,” said Stephen Botos, vice-president of marketing and business strategy. “We like that the site is close to our existing headquarters.

“In addition to our long history here, the park is close to neighborhoods where many of our employees live and to Route 28, which makes access to the park convenient and efficient.”

Donald Smith, RIDC Park president, said Aerotech’s growing presence in the industrial office community has helped make the property a success.

“They provide important products and services to industries that are leading our regional economy,” he said.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
