KISSIMMEE, FL, June 23, 2011
Diagnosys has announced plans to relocate the Kissimmee, FL, and Westford, MA, offices into a single, larger combined facility in the Westford area, approximately 35 minutes north of Boston. Significant growth over the past few years in the Functional Test Group, currently located in Westford, continues to drive expansion after securing several long-term contracts. The Diagnostic Group, currently located in Kissimmee, has maintained steady growth over the same time frame but also has seen a significant increase in the need for support of products and services to the Functional Test Group. This increase, along with the value gained by integrating the two teams, prompted the move.
The U.S. operation established in Kissimmee more than 17 years ago has seen many great changes through the evolution of the organization.
“Combining the two sites into a new facility is an exciting opportunity to leverage the success of both the Functional and Diagnostic Test Groups. Ultimately, the many benefits and efficiencies of a combined operation translates to better service for our customers,” said Tim Webb, president of U.S. operations, Diagnosys.
Approximately 80% of the Kissimmee staff including all of the engineering team will make the transition. Additional staff will be hired in Massachusetts to cover both the growth and the duties of the Kissimmee staff members not relocating.
The transition is scheduled to begin in early July with the final steps taking place in late September through early October. Significant planning has taken place to ensure a smooth transition and no interruption in critical customer support, services, or training. The training facility will remain in Kissimmee through October 2011.
