CPI Radant Technologies has begun operations at this Hudson facility.

CPI Radant Technologies of Stow, manufacturer of high-performance communications and radar equipment, has opened a new manufacturing facility in Hudson.

The 128,000-square-foot facility will support the growth of the company's in-flight entertainment and connectivity business.

Fifty employees are being added to the company's payroll at the new facility, which has received approval from the Federal Aviation Administration, as the company largely provides radomes to the airplane industry.

According to CPI, the facility was designed using lean manufacturing principles to enhance efficiency and reduce waste.

The facility is large enough to accommodate entire product lines, eliminating the need to shuttle materials between Hudson and the company's other location in Stow.

The company anticipates the ability to double its production rate and decrease cycle times significantly.

"CPI Radant Technologies Division has a great future in front of it supporting growing communications and defense applications," said President and CEO Bob Fickett, in a press release. "This new advanced manufacturing facility's greater production capabilities will enable Radant to serve its customers that much quicker and for many years to come."
