Sydor Instruments Completes Facility Expansion to Meet Customer Demand


Sydor Instruments has completed the move of its headquarters this month, to expand its testing, design and manufacturing capabilities. The new facility, located at 291 Millstead Way in Rochester, NY, offers 16,000 square feet for design, production, and testing of its custom diagnostics and imaging systems.

“We’ve opened our new facility to meet increasing demand for new products like the ROSS 1000 and ballistics imaging system. As we continue to grow in the Energy and Defense & Security markets, the new lab and manufacturing space will allow us to add engineering staff and increase production,” explains Michael Pavia, President of Sydor Instruments.

The expanded facility will also allow for new partnership opportunities. With 5000-7000 square feet of available space for lease, Sydor Instruments seeks a technology intensive company that would benefit from access to best-in-class high tech lab space and test equipment, and close proximity to the University of Rochester and Rochester Institute of Technology.

In addition to recent product launches, Sydor Instruments expects 2012 growth to mirror emerging Commercial, Research and Defense needs for improved testing and diagnostics. Recent reports suggest that improvements in today’s testing procedures for equipment survivability, lethality and vulnerability are needed to ensure that U.S. personnel and equipment survive and function effectively in hostile circumstances. In response, the US Army asked Sydor to design an imaging system that will enable dynamic characterization of small caliber projectiles, including velocity and complete yaw cycle measurements. The system is highly accurate, measurable, repeatable, and will be used on survivability and lethality assessments at Aberdeen Test Center.

Sydor Instruments continues to build on its world class ROSS (Rochester Optical Streak System) streak camera products and delivers custom single photon counting cameras, image intensifiers, photomultipliers, and detectors for aerospace, energy, and life sciences.
