Burnaby-based electronics manufacturer Dorigo Systems has broken ground a new facility on Glenlyon Parkway.
The company held a small ceremony earlier this month at the site of its future 106,000-square-feet manufacturing plant, located at Glenlyon Business Park. Once complete, the new facility will be more than twice the size of its existing location on Henning Drive and will increase Dorigo’s production capacity and improve efficiency for its customers, according to a press release.
The new headquarters will include a state-of-the-art manufacturing floor, training theatre, meeting rooms and recreation spaces for employees and is being designed by architect Christopher Bozyk and built by Burnaby-based developer Beedie group.
“Dorigo has deep roots in Burnaby. We are proud of the fact that all Dorigo’s products are manufactured here, which supports the provincial economy and creates many jobs for local residents. In constructing our company headquarters in Glenlyon, we are reaffirming our commitment to B.C.’s manufacturing and high-tech industries,” said company president Mark Pillon. “Our new building will rank among the most sophisticated electronics facilities in the Pacific Northwest.”
The new facility is expected to open spring of 2020.
