California-based Intellian Technologies has started construction of a 71,000-square-foot research and development, manufacturing and shipping facility in South Korea.
Scheduled for completion in February, the new facility will triple production capacity and provide six labs for increased product development and testing. Intellian says the increased capacity will allow it to accommodate growing demand for its marine satellite antennas, as well as development of larger antenna solutions.
Intellian has also increased the size of its North American research-and-development operations with the relocation of the company's chief technology officer to its Irvine, Calif., facility and an increase in staff to address the multiple carriers, and ku- and ka-band complexity.
"Worldwide demand for our marine antenna solutions has grown substantially over the last year," said Eric Sung, president and CEO of Intellian Technologies, in a statement. "Our new facility is necessary for us to address the current and future demand, while increasing our capability to develop even greater solutions for the market."
