1 Feb, 2013

Columbia Tech, a wholly owned subsidiary of Coghlin Companies, Inc., is proud to announce their recent expansion with the addition of a new facility in Westborough, Massachusetts. The facility adds 68,000 square feet of warehouse, distribution, manufacturing and office space, enhancing overall capabilities to provide world class contract manufacturing and global fulfillment services. The operation is state-of-the-art and has stringent quality assurance and compliance policies in place to ensure total satisfaction throughout their diverse customer base.

"Coghlin Companies and its subsidiaries, Columbia Tech, DCI Engineering, and Cogmedix are expanding steadily and this new facility provides an opportunity to gain additional efficiencies in our operations and maximize productivity to maintain our market leading position as one of the most cost effective, high quality contract manufacturing service providers in America," stated Jim Coghlin , Chief Operating Officer at Coghlin Companies. He continued, "Our new facility will expand our footprint to support our growing sales in the homeland security, semiconductor, data storage, medical device and alternative energy markets and allow us to consolidate and optimize existing supply chain and logistics functions."

The demand for the expansion was driven by an opportunity to consolidate operations into a more flexible and efficient space. There is also additional opportunity for expansion in the same facility to support an increased volume of clients who require product development, NPI and contract manufacturing services for large system integrations, container based solutions, and skid platforms. These types of client requirements have been seen much more frequently, and will continue to grow in the coming years. Coghlin Companies is committed to staying ahead of the curve on client needs, industry trends and creating exceptional customer experiences.
