With Tigard Mayor John L. Cook on hand to cut the ceremonial ribbon, Biamp Systems hailed four decades in business and gave attendees a tour of its Tigard facility last Wednesday, July 27.

“Biamp has been manufacturing great products in Oregon for 40 years now,” said Steve Metzger, the company's president and chief executive officer. “This amazing new facility continues the proud legacy of making Biamp products in-house. I'm excited for what it means to our employees and customers.”

Biamp manufactures audio and video networking electronics, such as conferencing equipment and paging systems.

The company is based at 9300 S.W. Gemini Dr. in Beaverton's Greenway neighborhood. Its new facility in Tigard is located at 10575 S.W. Cascade Ave., about a mile to the southeast.

According to Biamp, the Cascade Building effectively joins the existing Gemini Building in Beaverton as part of the company's headquarters.

Biamp's chief operating officer, Matt Czyzewski, said that by opening the new facility, Biamp has “increased manufacturing capacity and streamlined production to better support our customers.”
