Kopin expanding Taunton production center

During a ceremony to mark the receipt of a new $3m state development grant, Kopin Corp announced plans for an expansion of its production facility in Taunton, MA, USA (for completion later this year) to support the growing demand for its microdisplays and GaAs-based heterojunction bipolar transistors (HBTs) products.

“The grant represents a partnership between Kopin and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts to create jobs,” said Dr John C.C. Fan, president and CEO. “This grant is a continuation of our strategy which includes federal, state and Kopin resources and revenues to develop leading-edge display products for use in consumer and military applications,” he adds.

The state grant will be used for the construction of clean room facilities, infrastructure improvements and a job training program. Kopin expects to increase its workforce over the next five years and beyond. Currently, there are about 140 people working at the Taunton facility.
