MILPITAS, CA -- EMS firm NBS has finalized plans to open a new 60,000 sq. ft. facility here later this quarter.

The company plans to will move its contract electronics manufacturing headquarters to Dixon Landing Business Park from its current Santa Clara location during the first quarter. The new building is about 10,000 sq. ft. more than NBS's current plant, and expands its floor space for assembly and test operations by 50%, the company said.

“We are pleased to announce this latest move and expansion of our business for a variety of reasons,” said Michael Maslana, president and CEO. “In the context of ongoing industry discussion about re-shoring, it’s in no small measure an indicator of the resilience of US manufacturing and NBS in particular.  Our perspectives on Made in USA have been cornerstones of the NBS business strategy for years, even when the basic notion was unpopular. So we’re genuinely excited to open 2013 demonstrating results to substantiate those ideas.”
