Automated Dynamics (Schenectady, NY, US) recently moved in to a new 2,790m2 building in the Niskayuna Commerce Park in Niskayuna, NY, and celebrated the facility's grand opening Wednesday, July 13, 2016. Active in the industry for more than 30 years, Automated Dynamics currently specializes in the manufacture of high-performance composite structures, development of advanced automation equipment, and solution-based engineering services. Using an out-of-autoclave process, the company offers patented automated fiber placement technologies, and says it has already logged production of hundreds of thousands of composite parts for more than 500 clients in 17 countries. The modern facility reportedly will support the company’s expansion strategy as its client base advances further, globally.
“We are thrilled to be here in Niskayuna," says company president Rob Langone, "This building provides for our business needs now and over the next few years. It offers our employees a minimal change in commute over our last location and provides customers with a site that is fitting of the products and services we deliver."
Along with the expansion, Automated Dynamics plans to increase its workforce by more than 60% over the next five years. New jobs will be added in sales and engineering, as well as on the manufacturing floor. This year has already seen the addition of sales staff and a new machine technician, along with two full-time interns. Automated Dynamics is currently looking to add another technician and has an open position for a sales representative in the aerospace market.
