The new Westborough facility is a 150,000-square-foot building that was established in 2021.
This facility was constructed to unite the Southborough and Littleton branches to create a collaborative and engaging workspace for all Massachusetts-based employees.
The building encompasses an onsite cafeteria, fitness center and daycare, along with state-of-the-art training and R&D labs.
Additionally, it features conference rooms and meeting spaces with innovative technology for virtual and global collaboration across many platforms.
“The expansion of our medical business in Massachusetts furthers our ability to support physicians in diagnosing and treating diseases and disorders, such as colorectal cancer,” stated Reynolds. “With this new investment, we also deepen our impact throughout the state as we further our connections and collaborations with health care and community partners.”
Receiving this award is a true testament to the hard work and innovation that Olympus puts into its employees and its products, with the ultimate goal of making people’s lives healthier, safer, and more fulfilling.
