nexMatrix Telecom has announced that it has added 2,000 square feet of additional space on 2nd Street South in Nampa, ID – about 20 miles west of Boise.
This announcement was made after the company planned to carry on its assembly, firmware burn-in and shipping operations for their Protel premises IP-PBX (News - Alert) equipment – including its newest offering, a home and small office unit code-named "Microbrew" – in the new facility.
Company officials also said their manufacturing operations for the U.S. and Canada will remain in western Idaho.
According to company CEO, Dianne Ursini, the Nampa community is an ideal location in which to scale up production of their telephony appliances, particularly since those operations do not require a great deal of floor space or an advanced technical workforce.
nexMatrix is currently offering nexSwitch level 4 & 5 softswitches, and the ATLANTIS suite of CRM/SCM/ERP applications. Along with these, the company also provides carrier services, including retail and wholesale SIP termination, private line circuits and softswitch timesharing.
"I believe that manufacturing needs to come back to the States while providing better functionality and price points against foreign competition from companies such as Mitel, Samsung (News - Alert), NEC and Panasonic, to name a few," Ursini said. "It's also about bringing some jobs back by applying superior American innovation, from the heartland of the United States," she added.
The company, which previously planned to move its manufacturing facilities to other North American cities or to overseas operations that offer attractive business development incentives, later on decided to remain in Nampa's quaint downtown district.
Company officials have confirmed that the current models of the Protel PBX will start its production in the new facility by October 15 of this year, and the new Microbrew product is expected to be in full production by early 2013.
