Update: A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held on February 24, 2021, to mark the official grand opening of our new 52,000-square-foot facility in Orlando, Fla., which houses corporate headquarters and our manufacturing, engineering and administrative teams.
Ocean Insight is pleased to announce its relocation to an expansive new facility in Orlando. The facility is nearly double the size of our existing space, providing additional manufacturing capacity and flexibility. Also, the new site will provide space for additional laboratory, training and innovation facilities as well as an expanded reception area to welcome customers, depending on travel and safety precautions.
“The new facility will give us more capacity, flexibility, and opportunity for automation,” says John Hsing, Ocean Insight’s Chief Operating Officer. “And it will give us the ability to change production lines, so we can build a better-quality product and increase capacity with the same number of people that we have now. We also wanted a space that better reflects Ocean Insight as a high-tech photonics business.”
On February 24, 2021, Ocean Insight President Michael Edwards and employees welcomed area political and business leaders to the facility for a ribbon-cutting ceremony. Among the attendees was Orange County (Florida) Mayor Jerry L. Demings; Tim Giuliani, president and CEO of the Orlando Economic Partnership; and Janie Goddard, Divisional Chief Executive for the Medical and Environmental Sectors of Halma plc, parent company of Ocean Insight.
How does the new facility compare with the former building? It’s considerably larger – 52,000 square feet versus 31,000 square feet. Also, as a customized space, it’s been designed for maximum manufacturing efficiency and to provide a more engaging experience for visitors. And safety practices first adopted at the beginning of the pandemic – the use of shields and partitions to separate workstations, for example – have been integrated into the building design.
Where is the new facility? The new building is just over 5 miles from our former Winter Park, Fla., facility, which served us well for many years. The facility has good access to major highways, lodging and Orlando International Airport. Here’s the address:
3500 Quadrangle Blvd.
Orlando, FL 32817 USA
Have the phone number and other contact information changed? No. Please continue to use our standard contact details as outlined on the Contact Us page.
When can I visit the new facility? Depending on COVID-19 travel restrictions and safety considerations, we are hopeful customers will be able to tour the facility soon.
