Salt Lake City — Blackrock Microsystems has announced the grand opening of its new 60,000-square-foot headquarters. The new facility is located in the University of Utah’s Research Park.
“Our new headquarters facility represents the absolute state of the art in its utilization of space, energy efficiency and technological capabilities,” said Florian Solzbacher, chairman and president of Blackrock Microsystems. “We could not be happier with this building and location, which will accommodate our core business growth for the next 15-plus years, while providing excellent strategic partnership and economic development opportunities through our incubation space.”
The new facility features a built-in clean room facility to serve the fabrication needs of the company’s clean-tech implantable systems. The clean room will also facilitate the product development and manufacturing needs of the residents of Blackrock’s incubator space, which will comprise approximately half of the facility’s physical space. Blackrock will explore opportunities for collaborative value creation with the companies in its incubator and other potential strategic partners.
“The completion of this most advanced new facility is a tremendous addition to the University of Utah community,” said David W. Pershing, president of the University of Utah. “Blackrock Microsystems is at the strategic nexus of what is best about both the University and industry—world-class applications that drive key advancements in both research and patient care.”
