SANTA ROSA – In another sign that manufacturing is picking up, Immecor has moved its warehouse operation to leased quarters on Piner Road in Santa Rosa so that the operations at its Circadian Way headquarters can be expanded.

“We gained about 3,000 to 4,000 badly needed square feet,” said Nhon Tran, Immecor’s owner and COO.

Five-year-old contract manufacturer Immecor builds and tests high-end servers and related components for the entertainment, telecommunication, medical and semiconductor equipment industries.

New contracts from government agencies and the entertainment sector have caused Immecor’s volume to double, said Mr. Tran.

He’s added seven new staff members to the staff of 21 and once an extensive, $120,000 remodeling process is completed, more might be hired.

The 16,500-square-foot facility Immecor moved into a couple of years ago from a location near the Charles M. Schulz-Sonoma County airport is “OK for now, but if business continues to pick up next year we’ll have to consider taking more space,” he said.

Immecor recently inked a contract with an unnamed Hollywood entertainment giant to build its next-generation 3D computers, he said, a major factor in the expansion.

He and his brother, who is not connected to Immecor, purchased an 11,360-square-foot building at 1651 Piner Road, which will act as temporary warehousing space for Immecor. The company is in the process of leasing warehouse space near Immecor’s headquarters on Circadian Way.

Immecor also maintains an office in Milpitas. For more information, visit www.immecor.com.
