A processor and manufacturer of advanced materials used in electronics applications plans to add hundreds of jobs at an upstate New York facility.
Indium Corp., which refines, smelts, manufactures, and supplies materials for semiconductors, telecommunications, medical devices, and aerospace systems, announced that it would add 24,000 square feet of space to its plant in Rome, New York. The more than $10 million project would make Rome the company’s largest manufacturing facility by square footage.
The Rome plant specializes in solder fabrications used primarily by electronics manufacturers in their final assemblies. Once completed, the factory will feature 25 production processes and more than 175 pieces of manufacturing equipment.
The expansion is expected to create 300 jobs over the next two years. Indium opened the Rome plant in 2013 with just a handful of employees; 163 people currently work at the site.
Indium President and COO Ross Berntson said the investment proves the company’s commitment to “contributing to the already fantastic quality of life” in Rome, New York.
Indium operates 15 facilities with more than 1,300 workers across the U.S., U.K., Germany, India, China, Malaysia, Singapore, and South Korea. The majority of its workforce — about 950 people — is based in central New York. ThomasNet
