Exxelia Micropen Expands Manufacturing in Honeoye Falls
Increased Demand in Medical Device, Aerospace and Electronics Markets Propels Significant Growth for Company
To accommodate current and future demand for its technologies, Exxelia Micropen has completed construction to expand its Honeoye Falls facility by more than 20 percent. The 9,000-square-foot addition includes 5,000 square feet of new cleanroom space, enabling the company to double the capacity of its manufacturing operations.
Exxelia Micropen utilizes its proprietary technology to “print” ultra-precise lines of conductive inks on three-dimensional and flexible surfaces, including advanced medical devices. The technology is also used to make high-performance resistors for a wide range of demanding applications in aerospace, imaging, and electronics. Since 2017, the company has experienced double-digit growth every year as demand for its innovative engineering, design, and manufacturing services has escalated.
“As we continue to develop new partnerships to meet the unique needs of customers across the globe, we outgrew our space,”
“The expansion allows us to boost our production volumes while we continue to provide the innovative technologies
and exceptional service and delivery times that our customers have come to rely on.”
said Ed Petrazzolo, CEO, Exxelia Micropen.
Exxelia Micropen partnered with Hamilton Stern Construction and Hanlon Architects for the expansion, which began in the spring. In addition to the manufacturing space, the project includes a new lobby, employee breakroom, and more office space. Parking also grew to a total of 140 spaces.
“The expansion of Exxelia Micropen’s facility is a prime example of the success of our Design-Build service, which provides clients with a cohesive, one-stop-shop experience to save time and reduce costs,” said Justin Hamilton, Principal, Hamilton Stern. “Our close partnership with Hanlon Architects, Marathon Engineering, and Exxelia Micropen enabled this project to be completed in roughly 13 months all while fully maintaining the facility’s production volumes. We are grateful for Exxelia Micropen’s trust in our firm to be part of their continued growth.”
“We are proud of what we have built in Honeoye Falls,” said Petrazzolo. “The talented employees we’re able to recruit from the Rochester area are critical to our success, and the expansion only reinforces our commitment to further develop our presence here. We look forward to a long, prosperous future as part of this community.”
NASA's X-59 QueSST: Exxelia is on board
If the program lives up to its promise, it could lead to the emergence of supersonic transport aircraft capable of flying over land, without the limitations imposed on Concorde in its day. For this project, Exxelia mainly produces coils from our US sites. Our components are intended for the aircraft engine. With its elongated nose, its "humped" wings and its small scattered lifting surfaces, the X-59 is unlike any other aircraft. An exceptional configuration for exceptional capabilities. Credits: NASA It will fly at a speed of 1.5 Mach (1.5 times the speed of sound), or more than 1,800 kilometers per hour. NASA hopes that its aircraft will eventually be used in civil aviation. If the tests are successful, the X-59 QueSST could have two revolutionary effects on the U.S. and even the world's aeronautical landscape: The test aircraft could serve as inspiration for future mass-produced transport aircraft, whether airliners or business jets. The LBFD project as a whole could lead to an evolution of current aviation regulations. Rather than banning all civilian supersonic flights over the U.S., as is the case today, NASA is proposing to introduce noise-based regulation. Credits : Lockheed Martin, NASA
