Hamilton Storage Technologies has opened a new facility in Franklin, MA for its automated sample management and storage systems. The facility will serve as the Sample Management division's headquarters and the East Coast competence center for Hamilton Company, a design and manufacturer of liquid handling, process measurement, robotics, and storage solutions.
The facility will replace two separate facilities located in Hopkinton and Milford, MA, and includes 30,000 sq. ft. of manufacturing space with a customizable, open floor plan to handle increased product demand.
"The company selected Franklin primarily because of its proximity to biotechnology communities and skilled talent pool in the greater Boston area," said Matt Hamilton, vice president of Hamilton Storage Technologies. "By more than quadrupling our space, we can bring all of our operations under one roof and still have plenty of room to grow, while providing a more collaborative and productive work environment for our employees."
According to the company, the new facility will allow for efficient production of Hamilton’s innovative product development, including its new ultra-cold automated sample storage system, BiOS, which provides robotic handling and retrieval systems to ensure that samples stay close to -80°C while being picked.
