OMAX Corporation (Kent, WA) designs, manufactures, markets and supports its advanced abrasive waterjet machines and accessories from its manufacturing facility and corporate headquarters in Kent. Last month the company completed the largest expansion of its campus since opening the Kent facility in 1999, adding a new 22,000 sq ft building that extends its training, research and development, and engineering efforts.

The company has experienced significant growth over the past several years, making the expansion necessary. In fact, OMAX was recently named, for the second time, to Inc. Magazine’s 500|5000 list of the fastest-growing private companies in America for achieving 21 percent business growth between 2008 and 2011.

According to Dr. John Cheung, the chief executive officer of the company, such growth can be attributed in part to the company’s 2009 launch of its cost-effective MAXIEM® JetCutting Center Series, which makes abrasive waterjet technology more accessible. Another key growth contributor is the team’s commitment to continuously developing and supporting new and improved technologies that meet the diverse and ever-changing needs of manufacturers worldwide.

The building expansion allows for a new dedicated training space, including a lab area, where company sales representatives, distributors and end-users can gain the highest levels of understanding and retention of the world’s most advanced abrasive waterjet technology. The expansion will also increase the company’s research and development and engineering capacities, allowing for better support of existing solutions and faster, more efficient development of new machines and accessories.
