Ultrasonic transducer and sensor manufacturer Airmar Technology Corp. more than doubled its footprint at its Milford, N.H., headquarters with the opening of a 73,000-square-foot manufacturing plant.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held May 12 at the new facility, named Airmar East, which sits next to the company’s existing 68,000-square foot plant.

“This is an exciting time at Airmar,” president and COO Matthew Boucher said in a statement. “The new building will serve to increase our competitiveness and support future growth.”

Joining in the grand opening and ribbon-cutting ceremony were New Hampshire Gov. Maggie Hassan, U.S. Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, U.S. Rep. Ann Kuster, a representative from U.S. Sen. Kelly Ayotte's office and town officials.

Tours of the Airmar facilities and an employee appreciation luncheon followed the ceremony.
