Beijer Electronics, a Sweden-based global technology company, has opened its U.S. headquarters in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Beijer Electronics says it has experienced rapid growth and has now moved into a state-of-the-art research and development/manufacturing facility totaling over 44,000 square feet.

An open house was held last month, where corporate leadership from the parent company in Sweden attended along with other company executives, members of the business community and government dignitaries. To celebrate, the company is holding a ribbon-cutting ceremony followed by an open house and facility tours.

“Beijer Electronics, Inc. has been operating in Utah for more than 30 years and we are excited to share with the community our new headquarters for the Americas during our open house,” says Barry Hobbs, CEO Beijer Electronics, Inc. “We plan to add about 12 percent of our current workforce to our ranks in the next year alone and the building will serve our needs as we continue to grow. This new facility has everything a sophisticated R&D company would need including lab space, heavy power, water, high-efficiency HVAC, lighting systems, access to fiber and ample warehouse and office space.”
