We recently hosted an office party to mark the 5th anniversary of the founding of Kasalis. In our celebratory presentation, we reminisced about both the good times and the struggle to get a start-up off the ground and running. It has been a rollercoaster for these five years: overall, very exciting, but not without its ups and downs.
In 2012, we released our first products and were able to shake hands with our first customer. Soon we gained distributors and saw market growth. When 2014 rolled around, our numbers were growing so swiftly that we had to move to an office triple the size of our old one. We worked hard, traveled a great deal, and in 2015, our company was acquired by Jabil Circuit. We are now proudly a part of their Jabil Optics division.
Since then, we have kept busy, launching our Pixid 500 systems in 2016 and moving, yet again, to a bigger, more secure office. Now that we are finally settled in, we have time to celebrate! We are looking at a future with growth in some exciting markets, such as augmented reality, gesture recognition, and self-driving vehicles. So…cheers to five years of rigorous innovation and collaboration at Kasalis. Here’s to the next five and beyond, and a big thanks to our customers and partners for a great start.
Kasalis is buzzing with talk of moving to our new office, which is currently being renovated to suit camera module alignment equipment manufacturing and our growing number of employees. Crowding into the current office has become a necessity, to the point of putting desks in the printer room, so everyone is thrilled that we’ll soon have a new, and much bigger, office.
Our interior design team is developing some cutting-edge features that will reflect the innovative and industrial feeling we want in the office. There will be clear acrylic photo panels, colorful accents, and unique light fixtures to warm up the rooms.
The new office space includes an open work area with natural light, new clean room, reception area, and plenty of offices that will house our management team and employees. The space also includes a kitchen with ample eating space, two large conference rooms, and additional meeting areas throughout.
Moving day should happen sometime in April, so we will post an announcement, photos, and our new address when it’s ready.
Interest in the Pixid camera module alignment and assembly systems has fueled major growth at Kasalis. Here is a Pixid 300 about to be shipped out (foreground) with a fully assembled one in the background.
Excitement is building here at Kasalis, as we take on more employees and prepare to move our global headquarters to a new location (just down the street) in Burlington, Massachusetts.
Our camera module alignment and assembly systems have met with enthusiasm from manufacturers both abroad and in the U.S., accelerating growth for 2014. Our focus is on providing responsive staff and innovative products to customers, thereby supporting and enhancing the industries we serve.
Kasalis will remain in the Northwest Park technology area of Burlington. Our new office and clean room facility is nearly triple the size of our current office and is scheduled to be completed in March 2014. Click here for the official release.
