Area Development Online News Desk (11/01/2013)
TREK, INC., a designer and manufacturer of high-voltage power amplifiers and high-performance electrostatic instruments, sensors and monitors, moved its headquarters and production from Medina, New York to a newly refurbished historic facility at 190 Walnut Street in Lockport, New York.
The company said its new facility was owned and operated by Harrison Radiator in years past “and represents an excellent example of adaptive re-use of an existing but vacated property.” The move was supported and assisted by the City of Lockport, Niagara County and New York State. Additional space is available within the building for future growth.
Michael Dehn, TREK, INC. President, said, "This relocation positions the company for growth by addressing Trek's strategic need for expanded manufacturing capabilities, ready-access to skilled workers and proximity to Trek's Technology Center and to SUNY Buffalo."
The company said it is experiencing increased demand for its custom OEM designs as well as new products. Trek's products for original equipment manufacturers are utilized in multi-million dollar equipment and systems to assure precise performance is attained consistently and reliably.
Trek's proximity to SUNY Buffalo will allow more opportunities for student internships, employment opportunities for graduates, and access to university technologies and equipment through partnering arrangements, company officials said.
The company's Research & Development and Engineering groups are housed nearby in the Trek Technology Center at the renovated Canal Street Building. The 'Tech Center' is dedicated to the development of technologies and designs in support of Trek's strategic growth. The proximity of the Walnut Street and Canal Street facilities will enhance project team interactions and accelerate product development, the company said.
