23 August 2018
Analog Devices have officially broken ground on its global headquarters in Wilmington, where the expanded facility will feature highly advanced laboratories, design and manufacturing facilities, plus cross-functional group collaboration space.
In addition to 13,700 additional square metres for research and development, the global headquarters will include a 4,700m² hub – comprising a café, fitness facility and auditorium, which will be designed to enable and encourage employees from all departments and functions to gather, connect and engage.
At a ground-breaking ceremony, the company hosted Jay Ash, secretary of housing and economic development for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, Senator Bruce Tarr, Jeff Hull, manager of the town of Wilmington and other dignitaries from the Commonwealth, associated industries of Massachusetts, and so on.
Following brief remarks from guests, including Analog Devices’ co-founder and chairman Ray Stata, executives and speakers participated in a celebratory ‘ground-breaking’ (see above picture).
A pictorial history of the Wilmington facility was on display alongside renderings of the new facilities and renovations to existing structures, which showcased light-filled spaces and greenery, both in and outside the buildings.
“We are committed to building the Analog Devices of the future,” said John Hassett, senior vice president of Global Operations and Technology at Analog Devices. “We have invested and upgraded our facilities globally to provide more modern, latest technological and work design advances, to support and foster the highest level of innovation. This new campus will be our global showcase – enabling us to highlight our best work, attract top talent and build new partnerships.”
