IMT Inauguration CeremonyMT. OLIVE, NEW JERSEY, NOVEMBER 18, 2010 – Integrated Microwave Technologies (IMT), a Business Unit within the Vitec Group’s Videocom Division, and a leader in advanced digital microwave systems serving the MAG (Military, Aerospace & Government), Broadcast and Sports & Entertainment markets, announced today the grand opening of its new engineering and manufacturing facility located in Mt. Olive, NJ in the International Trade Center.  This move will help the company further execute its strategy to meet the increasing demand for class leading wireless video solutions.

The new facility encompasses 65,000 square feet and features full functionality under one roof including research and development, application engineering, manufacturing assembly, electronic testing and customer technical support.  As such, this new location combines and expands IMT’s three previous sites located in Carlisle, PA; Haverhill, MA and Hackettstown, NJ into a new single efficient building. As a result of this consolidation, a new manufacturing layout will allow IMT to better manage its workflow methods as well as optimize its procedures and processes.

Commenting on the move, Steve Shpock, President, Integrated Microwave Technologies, said, “IMT is delighted to relocate into this brand new multi-functional facility.  These expanded capabilities will allow us to meet the growing need for our products and technologies especially those stringent demands found in the MAG marketplace.”

IMT currently has a workforce of approximately 140 employees.  With this expansion, the company expects to create more high technology positions in the future. Adds Shpock, “IMT’s move to Mt. Olive will increase the company’s employment by up to 16% over the next year and will generate much needed good paying jobs in New Jersey.”
