Cognex Expands Manufacturing and Distribution Center

April 15, 2008

The facility in Cork, Ireland, will be the center for shipping products to customers in Europe, Asia, and Japan, and help the company to be more responsive to its international customers, distributors, and partners.

NATICK, MA /BUSINESS WIRE/ -- Cognex Corp. announced that it has expanded its international manufacturing and distribution operations and moved into a new facility in Cork, Ireland. The increased space is needed to meet growing demand for Cognex products in those regions outside of the U.S.

The 20,000 sq. ft. new building was designed to Cognex's specifications and provides 50% more space than the previous location, which was also in Cork. The new facility will be the center for shipping products to Cognex customers in Europe, Asia, and Japan.

"Cognex first opened a manufacturing operation in Cork several years ago in order to provide more responsive service to our international customers," said Dr. Robert J. Shillman, Cognex Chairman and CEO. "As our international business has expanded, so has the need for increased manufacturing and distribution capacity. The new facility provides Cognex with the space to support that growth, and it will help us to be even more responsive to our international customers, distributors, and partners."

The new facility employs 39 employees, who are responsible for procurement, configuration, kitting, and distribution of Cognex vision systems, sensors, software, and ID readers, devices that help manufacturers automate the production of a broad range of products by inspecting, identifying, and tracking items during the production process.
