HSI Expands Its Reach Beyond Oklahoma
HSI Sensing announces the opening of a new development lab in Madison, Wisconsin that the company says will focus on manufacturing technology, processes, and efficiencies. HSI chose Madison as its first location outside of Oklahoma because of the region’s capacity for research & development, its talented engineering and manufacturing workforce, and the collaboration opportunities with both industry and academia.
“We are very excited about our new location,” says HSI Sensing president Ryan Posey. “The engineers we’ve hired are top notch, and they bring skill sets that will help drive HSI’s growth.”
The 5,800-square-foot development lab in Madison opened on July 6 with three engineering employees. HSI anticipates adding 15 additional jobs in the next 2-3 years.
“With the company’s focus on innovation, R&D, and precision manufacturing, it is a perfect fit for this region,” says Paul Jadin, president of the Madison Region Economic Partnership, which assisted HSI with their location and expansion search. “The talent pool and industry partners available in this area will provide a solid foundation for the company’s success as it expands in Wisconsin.”
The opening of the Madison facility marks HSI Sensing’s first expansion outside of its 55,000-square-foot facility in Chickasha, Oklahoma.
