NexPlanar will open a new 18,000 square foot manufacturing facility in Hillsboro, Oregon by the end of the year to meet increased demand. Approximately 10 new jobs will be created, NexPlaner said.

“Because of the unique design of our product, customers in the US and Asia have been qualifying NexPlanar’s pads and it became necessary to increase capacity,” noted Jim LaCasse, NexPlanar CEO. “We also wanted to have the ability to incrementally increase capacity in the future.  This new Hillsboro site provides for a significant capacity increase and the flexibility needed for the future.”

NexPlanar also manufactures CMP pads in Minneapolis, MN.
