nexMatrix, a developer of nexMatrix softswitch, has announced that the company will continue to carry on its manufacturing operations for the United States and Canada in western Idaho.
In order to expand its product line beyond its current range, the company has acquired 2,000 square feet of additional space on 2nd Street South in the city of Nampa, about 20 miles west of Boise.
This new facility will be utilized to assemble, firmware burn-in and shipping operations for its Protel premise IP-PBX (News - Alert) equipment, including its newest offering, a home and small office unit code-named "Microbrew."
nexMatrix offers the nexSwitch softswitches, a powerful, robust signaling engine that enable users to deliver carrier grade VoIP services. The nexSwitch SoftSwitch offers both carrier and enterprise markets a scalable softswitch that can reliable VoIP traffic and services over multiple IP networks.
nexMatrix had considered moving manufacturing facilities to other North American cities that offer attractive business development incentives, or even to overseas operations but later decided not to leave Nampa's quaint downtown district.
Speaking about setting up facility unit in Nampa, the company CEO, Dianne Ursini said in a statement, “The Nampa community remains an ideal location in which to scale up production of their telephony appliances, particularly since those operations do not require a great deal of floor space or an advanced technical workforce. nexMatrix continues to draw on trained development resources outside of the Idaho area for product design and ongoing technical enhancements.”
"I believe that manufacturing needs to come back to the States while providing better functionality and price points against foreign competition from companies such as Mitel (News - Alert), Samsung, NEC and Panasonic, to name a few," Ursini said. "It's also about bringing some jobs back by applying superior American innovation, from the heartland of the United States.”
