Implant Sciences Corp., a Wilmington company that makes homeland security devices such as the Quantum Sniffer explosives detector, said has more than doubled the size of its headquarters and manufacturing operations to accommodate growth.
In a press release, the company said its new 58,000-square-foot facility is located in the same Wilmington technology park as its previous location.
‘‘As we continue to advance our certification efforts both here in the US and internationally, we expect growing sales,” Implant Sciences’ president and chief executive Glenn D. Bolduc said in a statement. “Expanding our Massachusetts facility underscores our commitment to manufacturing high-tech equipment right here in the USA.”
Implant Sciences specializes in next generation explosives trace detection technology. One product is a line of portable explosives detectors called the Quantum Sniffer. According to the company, its Quantum Sniffer QS-H150 is so sensitive it can “detect parts-per-billion (ppb) levels of explosives vapor and nanogram quantities of explosives particulates for most threat substances.”
