Virginia-based company expands in Salem
The plant is the electronic manufacturing services provider’s fifth facility and represents a move from Methuen to New Hampshire for the company’s northern presence in the United States.
The EIT Salem facility supports both prototype and production builds for medical, industrial, telecommunications, aerospace and defense customers, according to Hager.
With the additional space, Hager said the company expects to see both of those numbers grow.
“We want to grow and expand the business and grow the workforce,” he said. “We want to employ more people and help the economy.”
In addition to having more room at the Salem facility, Hager said there are several other benefits to moving to New Hampshire. The company has received considerable support from the state Department of Resources and Economic Development.
Some of the hallmarks of EIT’s success in Virginia and New Hampshire resides in its focus on customer service and its high technical capacity to build the products its customers need, Hager said.
Its capabilities and resources include mechanical assembly, engineering design, machining and sheet metal and cabling/wire harness fabrication.
