Vista, CA-Heidelberg Engineering is moving its corporate U.S. headquarters to the Carlsbad Research Center in Carlsbad, CA, from Vista, CA, in April, citing “continued, rapid growth” as the reason. The Carlsbad location includes space for future expansion and access to a highly trained biotech employment pool.

The company also will move its service center to a new facility in Rhode Island later this year. The expansion comes after 4 years of double-digit growth built on the success of its leading product, a spectral-domain optical coherence tomography device (Spectralis SD-OCT).

“We feel fortunate to be experiencing such strong growth during one of the biggest economic downturns in our nation’s history,” said Travis Lindsay, general manager and chief operating officer of Heidelberg Engineering, which has worldwide headquarters in Heidelberg, Germany. “The new facilities reflect our position as the leading innovator of confocal scanning laser technology and will help us continue to provide first-in-class service for our customers.”
