Accumet Engineering, Inc. announces plans to build a new 39,375-square-foot manufacturing facility and expand its operations in Devens, MA. The company expects to begin construction on the new facility this month, to be complete by August 2022, and create several new jobs in the next three years.
Located in north central Massachusetts, Devens is a 4,400-acre mixed-use community and an award-winning model for military base reuse. After serving as the U.S. Army’s New England headquarters for 79 years, Fort Devens was closed in 1996. Since then, MassDevelopment has worked to transform this site into a sustainable and thriving mixed-use community, providing municipal services, education, environmental protection, and infrastructure improvements to support continued redevelopment and job creation. A 2020 University of Massachusetts Donahue Institute report found that Devens businesses, nonprofits, and governmental organizations employ more than 6,000 workers. It also found that an estimated $2.3 billion in direct economic activity by private and nonprofit organizations in Devens supported additional spending of $1.5 billion in local supply chains for a total contribution of nearly $3.8 billion to the Massachusetts economy in 2019.
“I am thrilled that my company will be able to expand further and thrive in Devens, MA” said Accumet Engineering, Inc. President and CEO Gregory Sexton. “I look forward to consolidating our two existing locations into one brand new facility which is being designed with growth in mind."
