Electronics component maker CVD Equipment Corp. is expanding and moving -- and hiring.
It's moving from Ronkonkoma to Central Islip -- about 15 minutes' drive away -- where it has bought a building nearly twice the size of its current headquarters, the company said Tuesday.
CVD is looking to fill jobs in its nanotechnology, solar and energy tech division. It’s looking for a research scientist, project and division managers, engineers, draftsmen, assemblers. Here's their jobs-available page.
CVD's planned move to a 120,000 square-foot Central Islip facility will allow it to expand its application laboratory and its engineering, manufacturing and administrative operations.
The company’s two buildings at 1860 Smithtown Ave. in Ronkonkoma, totaling 63,275 square feet, are being offered for sale, Leonard Rosenbaum, the president and chief executive, said.
“The virtual doubling of the size of our Long Island facilities allows us to increase staff and capabilities in multiple product areas," Rosenbaum said.
"The planned expansion includes First Nano R&D equipment, CVD production equipment and, through our application laboratory, process development and material manufacturing programs which will advance the state of the art in 1-D, 2-D and 3-D nanotechnology beyond the traditional limits of the chemical vapor deposition field," Rosenbaum said.
"With this expansion, we will further accelerate the commercialization of tomorrow's technology and further our 'Sustainable Growth with Low Risk' business strategy."
