nexMatrix Keeps Manufacturing in North America, Expands Footprint in Nampa, ID
By Mandira Srivastava, TMCnet Contributor
After doing the due diligence on moving their manufacturing facilities to North American cities offering attractive business development incentives, or even to overseas operations, nexMatrix has decided to remain in Nampa's quaint downtown district. In an announcement made, the company has decided to keep its manufacturing operations for the United States and Canada in western Idaho.
To support their endeavor to expand their product line, nexMatrix has acquired 2,000 square feet of additional space on 2nd Street South in the city of Nampa, about 20 miles west of Boise. The new facility will house assembly, firmware burn-in and shipping operations for their Protel premise IP-PBX (News - Alert) equipment, including their newest offering, a home and small office unit code-named "Microbrew."
Company CEO Dianne Ursini has recognized the Nampa community as an ideal location to scale up production of their telephony appliances, given that those operations do not require a large floor space or an advanced technical workforce. nexMatrix continues to draw on trained development resources outside of the Idaho area for product design and ongoing technical enhancements.
"I believe that manufacturing needs to come back to the States while providing better functionality and price points against foreign competition from companies such as Mitel, Samsung, NEC (News - Alert) and Panasonic, to name a few," Ursini said in a statement. "It's also about bringing some jobs back by applying superior American innovation, from the heartland of the United States," she added.
Ursini also stated that the new facility will begin production of current models of the Protel PBX on October 15 of 2012. The new Microbrew product is expected to be in full production by early 2013. Microbrew, which is smaller than a pack of cigarettes, is a full-featured IP telephone control device with an extensive array of built-in PBX functions. It will provide a auto-installation wizard and will be marketed to home and small office end users of up to 10 extensions.
According to Ursini, the company is also expanding into the Australian and Pacific Rim market. Manufacturing for those regions is expected to happen in Adelaide, South Australia.
