Quality Vision International Groundbreaking Ceremony

QVI managers and local Rochester, NY, dignitaries break ground for the latest QVI campus expansion.

Quality Vision International (QVI), the Rochester, NY-based manufacturer of precision optical measurement systems, broke ground recently on a 16,000 sq. ft. manufacturing building on its Hudson Avenue campus. Construction of the building marks the last phase of a five-year, 37,000 sq. ft. expansion of the company's global engineering and manufacturing headquarters.

QVI Chief Operating Officer Keith Polidor said that "construction of this new building will complete our five-year plan to add the necessary manufacturing space for our expanded product lines, enabling us to serve the growing market for our metrology system products around the world."

The new Building #4 is the final phase of construction to add additional manufacturing capacity. Beginning in 2014, the company added 12,500 sq. ft. to its Assembly building, followed by a 4,200 sq. ft. addition to its South machine shop, and a 4,000 sq. ft. addition to its Customer Center showroom. Properties were acquired along Herald Street to provide the necessary land for buildings and parking. The Hudson Avenue campus occupies more than 275,000 sq. ft. of manufacturing space and employs over 300 full time staff.

QVI has been located at the 850 Hudson Ave. site since 1973. Prior to that, the company operated at 26 Forbes St. and at various locations in downtown Rochester since its founding in 1945.

"This additional capacity is a vital step forward as we continue serving our growing base of global manufacturing customers," said R. Stephen Flynn, Sr. Vice President of QVI. "As precision and quality grow ever more important to consumers, our products become more important to manufacturers. This new space will allow us to build the larger and more sophisticated measurement systems that our customers need to improve their production processes."

"So much of our growth is the result of our long-time partnerships with our Representative Partners," Flynn continued. "Twenty years ago, our Western New York Representative Dick Loewenguth helped break ground for our North Street Assembly Building. Today, his son Tom Loewenguth put the first shovel in the ground for this new building. These long-standing relationships between manufacturers and their sales representatives are increasingly rare, and we take great pride in these partnerships that have helped us to become the world leader in vision metrology systems."
