PI, a leader in nanopositioning, ultra-precision motion control, and piezo technology is expanding its U.S. production capacity with a new 120,000-square-foot facility in Shrewsbury, Massachusetts.

The new headquarters (see rendering image above) will be three times the aggregated space of its current locations in Auburn and Hopkinton, Massachusetts, and Nashua, New Hampshire.

Beginning in 2025, the company said it will manufacture precision motion and automation systems, air bearings, piezoelectric transducers, and nanopositioning components for leading-edge applications in industry and research at the new facility, while also developing innovative technologies.

“Over the past five years, annual sales of PI USA have grown by more than 10 percent. At the same time, PI’s production in the USA increased by 30 to 50 percent each year,” said Markus Spanner, CEO of the PI Group.“With this new production facility, we lay the foundation to meet the growing demands of the American markets. At the same time, by continuously increasing our local production, we further reduce lead times and provide even more flexibility to support our American customers.”
