OnPATH Technologies Announces Opening of New Headquarters Facility
OnPATH Technologies, the leading provider of physical layer switches that automate connectivity and help organizations to simplify and virtualize their physical layer infrastructure to improve the availability, manageability, and performance of their IT environments, announced it has moved into their new headquarters in Marlton. OnPATH is quickly establishing itself as a national leader in virtualized infrastructure layer (VIL) connectivity, and the companys new facility enhances its ability to meet customers growing need for data center cost management, productivity and efficiency.

New Headquarters are a Strategic Investment in the Companys Future

The move coincides with OnPATHs plans for significant product enhancements in 2008 that will add to the companys robust suite of physical layer switch and automation software solutions, according to Peter Dougherty, president and CEO of OnPATH Technologies. More than one-third of the Fortune 100, as well as some of the nations leading federal and state government agencies already utilize the companys technology.

OnPATHs new 15,000 square foot facility is strategically located in Southern New Jersey in a highly accessible location rapidly becoming a hub for the states leading technology players. The building includes management team, sales and administration offices, a state-of-the-art engineering and operations lab and client demonstration area and a dedicated customer training facilities.

The need for physical layer security, automation and virtualization in data centers has never been greater given the global economic climate, the proliferation of more complex, decentralized business models and other key market trends. OnPATHs decision to invest in a new facility was a direct response to this combination of conditions, said Dougherty. The demand for our products has been historically solid, and our new headquarters continues to equip us with the ability to deliver outstanding technology solutions for our current and future customerslocally or globally.

OnPATH Committed to Doing Business in New Jersey

OnPATH has made a conscientious decision to use localrather than outsourcedcontract manufacturers for surface mount technology assembly and sub-assembly work, with OnPATH performing the final equipment building and testing in Marlton. Firms such as SWEMCO, P&M Industries and CDM Electronics (all based in the greater Cherry Hill, NJ area) are among the companys locally based manufacturing and technology partners. An additional benefit of working with this strong and growing network of southern New Jersey manufacturing and technology organizations is that OnPATH has the functionality of a much larger organization, but is more nimble and more flexible when it comes to meeting customers needs.

We are strong advocates for supporting the local economy of our headquarters region whenever we can, said Dougherty. It makes good business sense. We have a very efficient business model that demands a tightly integrated supply chain with contract manufacturers in close proximity to our headquarters, where engineering, manufacturing, and testing takes place; as regular communication and quality assurance are essential.
