~ The custom-built facility doubles admin, engineering & production space ~
Amidst a rough start to the new year, we are proud to announce our completed relocation. As a global leader in production test equipment for the electronics industry, we are excited to have completed our move to a brand-new headquarters building located at 6108 188th St. NE, Suite B-800, Arlington, WA 98223.
“The new purpose-built factory and headquarters is less than a mile away from our previous location and provides an ideal environment for our Engineering, Production and Administration teams.” said John VanNewkirk, President, CheckSum.
“It was a big challenge to undertake a corporate move in the middle of a pandemic, but I am extremely pleased by how our team came together to make it happen. It’s been great to see how quickly we were able to settle into our new headquarters.”
Sabin Broadfoot, our Production Manager and essential long time team member said of the move, “Our new headquarters locates all departments together on one floor for improved team efficiency. After twenty plus years in our previous facility, doubling our space was the next right move.
Every desk, rack, bench and every piece of equipment was reviewed to decide if it fit in with our plan for growth. This made for a lot of work for all of us, but it was worth the wait. Our new building is exactly what we needed for our growth into the next decade.
With Covid-19 being a concern, the new building allowed us the space to social distance our staff and Big Ass Fans ® improved air flow. We are very fortunate and thankful that none of our staff has yet contracted the virus.”
Adding a dedicated demo and training space to our long-awaited new building is another improvement to our goal of serving our current and future customers better.
