SOLiD Calls Plano, Texas Home
August 2017 marks another milestone in the evolution of SOLiD as we completed the move from Silicon Valley to Plano, Texas, the Silicon Prairie. Why the move? It’s simple, we needed room to grow and where better than Texas. It a decision helped by many and the SOLiD team has already warmed to the new headquarters, new people and the unlimited opportunities the move presents.
SOLiD Americas’ President Ken Sandfeld put it this way, “SOLiD is growing and expanding to meet emerging market opportunities such as the Middleprise both cellular and public safety. SOLiD’s new facility in Plano not only positions us to move quickly to meet new demand but also raise the bar on our industry leading assembly, configuration and testing program (ACT), reducing failures and increases product availability."
- Product Research and Development Lab and engineering
- Expansive ACT facility and expanded team
- Larger warehouse and with state of the art shipping and receiving
- Dedicated Training resources and facilities
SOLiD’s decision to locate in Plano, Texas is reinforced by the broad and deep technical resource pool in the area. Some of the best in the business call the Dallas region home and some will undoubtedly help SOLiD achieve their innovation and revenue objectives. Oh, we are also excited about the Middleprise opportunities in our own backyard as well!
The SOLiD team is very proud of the new corporate digs and celebrated with a grand opening and open house. SOLiD’s CEO, Dr. Seung Hee Lee, preceded over a formal ribbon cutting ceremony to mark the grand opening and when asked why Plano, his answer was clear, “We are delighted to be moving into a new Americas headquarters in Plano, Texas. The Americas region is the fastest growing area of our business and this new facility will support that rapid growth around the world. The ability to innovate and to deliver that innovation faster are the key reasons we relocated to Texas.”
You’ve probably heard the saying Things are Bigger in Texas… SOLiD agrees but adds “We’re Bigger, and Better in Texas”.
