Molex Opens Fremont, California, Technology Center

Molex, a subsidiary of Koch Industries, opened its new 108,000-square-foot technology center in Fremont, California.

“The new technology center will enable us to better serve our growing customer base and co-developers in the region, empower closer collaboration, and provide important access to a leading center of investment and innovation,” according to Martin Slark, CEO, Molex.

“Our goal was to create a productive and inspiring space. By reflecting the rapidly changing way that talented people train, work and collaborate, together we can create more value for customers. The Molex technology center provides exceptional space and amenities that highlight what’s possible, and connect people to that larger vision,” he said.

The 108,000-sq. ft. building features over 50 miles of Molex Optical and Copper Cable Assembly Solutions, patch panels, adapter panels, modular office electronics and wire management tools. Advanced building capabilities include an intelligent, low-voltage Molex Transcend Network Connected Lighting System using a Power over Ethernet LED lighting network to enable energy savings through sensor feedback.

According to company officials, completion of the new building represents a significant investment by Molex to expand support for customers in the Silicon Valley. One of the largest San Francisco Bay area cities, Fremont boasts a vibrant backdrop and expanding area for technology innovators and industry leading companies.

The new technology center expands the scope and breadth of Molex design resources for Silicon Valley developers of medical devices, autonomous vehicles and other transportation technologies, as well as innovators in industrial automation, company officials said.

“We extend an enthusiastic welcome to Molex and applaud the investments industry leaders are making in building the infrastructure and future of our city. Through the development of exciting technologies and collaborative initiatives they stand to make a positive and lasting impact regionally and beyond,” said Fremont Mayor Lily Mei.
