Ground-penetrating radar (GPR) manufacturer US Radar recently moved its production, research and development, and customer training operations to a new 16,000-sq-ft facility in Morganville, New Jersey.
The building is set on six acres of land, some of which the company will use as a training ground for users of US Radar subsurface locating systems. The company retains its previous facility in Matawan, New Jersey, for marketing and administrative functions; however, most of the North American staff is based at the new location.
US Radar President Ron LaBarca said the company’s expansion comes at a time of increasing acceptance of GPR technology on jobsites, as demand grows for GPR-trained workers in various industries. US Radar’s upgraded facilities and onsite training capacity will help enable the company to meet these growing demands.
“We designed our training course with the typical operator in mind, and to make it easier for aspiring locators to understand what to look for,” LaBarca said.
US Radar’s new facility also introduces an expanded warehouse and office space with increased capabilities for R&D and production.
