Allegro MicroSystems, LLC is planning to relocate its Massachusetts operation from Worcester to a new facility at 100 Crowley Drive, Marlborough, MA that is being customized to the company's specific needs.
The move is part of an overall corporate expansion strategy to augment Allegro's plan for continued growth through the pursuit of new opportunities focused on advanced technology, innovation and product line expansion.
"We are very excited to provide our employees with a contemporary atmosphere that will foster a collaborative environment between our R&D, Quality, Finance and Operations groups," said Allegro President and Chief Executive Officer, Ravi Vig. "We expect that this new location will become an asset to attract our prospective workforce and set the foundation for our company's future growth."
Mr. Vig said the Worcester facility has served the company well since it was founded as Sprague Electric in 1965. However, with the company’s continued growth, their focus on innovative products and the inefficient utilization of the Worcester site, it is time to move to a facility that is better suited to meet the operational and R&D needs of their Massachusetts location. In addition to a consolidated, optimized space, the new Marlborough property at 100 Crowley Drive offers an array of amenities including onsite food service, a fitness center and 13 miles of walking and biking trails adjacent to the campus. The site located in the heart of Metrowest is also conveniently located at the interchange of I-290 and I-85, making it an attractive location for both employees and customers. Cushman & Wakefield represented Allegro MicroSystems, LLC in the search for this ideal location.
Allegro plans to be up and running in the Marlborough facility by the end of the summer. The move is part of a larger restructuring that also includes a 15,000-square foot expansion at Allegro's facility in Manchester, NH. The Manchester expansion is also on schedule to open this summer, further increasing the company's northeast US footprint.
