The Intellian Innovation Center is a new 71,000-square-foot, four-story building designed for increased production and technology development. The center's training facilities will provide partners an opportunity to gain in-depth product knowledge, hands-on experience and a firsthand understanding of the company's testing and manufacturing processes, according to Intellian.

"We are proud to announce that our new industry-leading Intellian Innovation Center has opened on schedule," said president Eric Sung. "Continuing to design and manufacture all of our antenna systems in-house, the Intellian Innovation Center further enhances our mission to provide the best marine satellite antenna solutions for recreational and commercial vessels. It also demonstrates our commitment to expand our product lines and offerings."

The center can accommodate large manufacturing quantities - up to 1,000 antenna units per month - and more efficient production of 1-meter and larger antennas, including the Intellian w-Series, VSAT models and 2.4-meter c-band antennas.
