Lebanon, NH - Hypertherm, a manufacturer of advanced cutting systems and high-power fiber lasers for cutting, has opened a new 160,000-square-foot manufacturing facility in Lebanon, NH. The additional manufacturing space is expected to facilitate the creation of up to 500 new jobs for New Hampshire, including advanced machinist and engineering positions.

New Hampshire Governor Maggie Hassan, Lebanon Mayor Georgia Tuttle, and Hypertherm’s Dick and Barbara Couch cut the ribbon outside the facility’s main entrance on March 4th. Afterwards the Governor spoke about manufacturing and business growth in New Hampshire.

"I want more New Hampshire businesses to have the kind of success that Hypertherm has had in entering new markets in order to make New Hampshire a leader in selling our services and goods around the world," Hassan said.

Guests learned about the building’s unique features. The building was designed with Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) principals to both lessen the building’s environmental impact and make the facility healthier for the Hypertherm associates who work there. It includes advanced research and development space, training classrooms, and engineering labs.

Hypertherm designs and manufactures advanced cutting products for use in a variety of industries such as shipbuilding, manufacturing, and automotive repair. The New Hampshire based company’s reputation for cutting innovation dates back more than 40 years. The associate-owned company has more than 1,300 associates along with operations and partner representation worldwide.
