HSI Sensing has expanded its current operations to a new 25,000 sf building in Chickasha, Oklahoma. Expected to be completed by June 2021, the new facility will house the company’s Genisco Filter Corp, an HSI Sensing subsidiary specialising in the designing and manufacturing of EMI/RFI filters.
“The new facility is a logical and necessary step toward strengthening HSI Sensing’s position as a global competitor,” said Travis Posey, Vice President of Business Development, HSI Sensing. “This new facility will handle an increasing volume of orders while solidifying a long-term strategy that aims to amplify growth for years to come.”
HSI Sensing has grown progressively over the years and currently produces its sensing technology, wich includes the world’s smallest reed switch and the world’s highest voltage reed switch at its Oklahoma location, while also maintaining a seperate facility in Wisconsin that manufactures Genisco Filter Corp’s EMI/RFI filters.
“The new facility will bring these two companies together under one roof,” said Posey. “The geographical circumstances at the two segmented locations offered limited opportunities for expansion. Concentrating entire production chains – from pre-fabrication to final assembly – in one place guarantees optimised production processes for both businesses.”
The company also plans to create new jobs in the future and expects their workforce to increase over the medium and long term.
