July 17, 2002 – Milpitas, CA – Transparent Networks Inc., a developer of intelligent photonic switching systems, has expanded and relocated its headquarters from Santa Clara to Milpitas, CA.
The new offices more than double the previous office capacity and quadruples the R&D lab and assembly areas, including the optical cleanroom.
Steven Nasiri, VP of operations, said, “The technological infrastructure of Milpitas and surrounding Silicon Valley, as well as the ready availability of qualified engineers, allows Transparent to continue its growth and to increase its R&D efforts.”
“This is an exciting time for Transparent Networks,” said Janusz Bryzek, president and CEO of Transparent Networks. “Relocation to a new facility in the middle of an economic downturn gave us not only the first class facility, but also significant savings on rent. When we were starting two years ago, we sequentially lost three leases to more mature companies, so we had to start our operations from my dining room. Now we could choose the type of facility, its location, and the custom tenant improvements. We have chosen the location next door to our MEMS foundry, significantly simplifying the wafer flow logistics, as our engineers are hands-on involved in MOEMS process development in this foundry.”
