Miamisburg-based photonic innovation company Excelitas Technologies is expanding its operations at the Mound Business Park.
The company has been at the Mound Business Park for more than 25 years and recently signed a 10-year lease for an additional 38,000 square feet, according to a statement. The extra office space is needed to meet demand for the company’s energetic safety systems, said Doug Benner, executive vice president of defense and aerospace and Excelitas.
Focused on delivering photonic solutions to meet the lighting, optronics, detection and optical technology needs of global customers, Excelitas has 180 employees and is growing, according to the release. It is the largest employer at the Mound.
“We are grateful for the continued support that the Mound Development Corporation, the City of Miamisburg, Montgomery County, and the State of Ohio have provided to Excelitas, enabling us to support our customers’ growing needs,” Benner said. “We just celebrated 25 years as a commercial business entity in Miamisburg and I look forward to calling Miamisburg home to the Excelitas Defense and Aerospace Strategic Business Unit and Energetic Systems Business Unit for many years in the future.”
Construction on Excelitas’s new office space is expected to begin in August and finish during the summer of 2020.
