Promicro Systems Expands Operations to Accommodate Growth of the HPC Market
Promicro Systems moved to a larger facility to accommodate significant business growth. The company has purchased a 26,000 square foot building in Poway, CA to house corporate headquarters, as well as manufacturing and engineering functions. Additionally, Promicro has hired more than 30 new personnel representing all business areas during the past year, with a focus on customer service and quality assurance.
The new facility benefits both business customers and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs). Companies now have a single source for their computing infrastructure, including Linux clusters, Intel-based servers and workstations, and storage/backup appliances. For OEMs, Promicro provides a one-stop shop with expert engineering, product lifecycle management and high volume production. The new facility allows Promicro to immediately double its production capabilities in the first phase, followed by a quadruple increase in the second phase. This additional bandwidth positions the company for continued expansion into new market segments.
“Promicro captured a significant share of the Linux clustering market in 2002, with over 80% of our revenue coming from new customers in the HPC market,” said Danen Butler, CEO of Promicro Systems. “We’ve added some of the world’s most respected organizations to our customer base. The fact that we are succeeding in such a tough economy illustrates the value and benefits that customers get from a Promicro-engineered solution. We’ve strengthened our capabilities across the board and added some of the technology industry’s brightest minds to our team. OEMs and businesses can turn to us for large scale HPC systems, without sacrificing time-to-market, product quality, or customer service.”
Promicro’s production operations will be moved into the new headquarters immediately, with corporate offices scheduled to move at the completion of the build-out in April 2003.
