A company known worldwide for its high-tech weather and environment monitoring equipment has announced plans to build a new 30,000 square foot facility in Louisville, Colorado.
The new structure for the Vaisala Corporation will go up inside the Colorado Technology Center technology park on the southeast side of Louisville, and will be adjacent to Vaisala’s current facility at 194 S. Taylor Avenue.
Altogether, the company, which is based in Vantaas, Finland, is expected to spend nearly $15 million on the new Louisville project.
With annual revenues in excess of $300 million, the company, founded in the 1930s by physicist and meteorologist Vilho Vaisala, has facilities in more than a dozen countries.
Its product offerings include a wide range of humidity, barometric pressure, and wind measurement instruments.
Vaisala built a $4.7 million manufacturing facility measuring 40,000 square feet in Boulder in 2002.
An exact construction schedule for the new Louisville location has not been announced, but it is expected that it will take at least two years for the completion of the facility.
