Marquardt has recently expanded into the defense, aerospace, UAV and medical markets. To continue to support new business opportunities along with its other current projects, this year Marquardt hired several new positions including business development roles and engineers.

Furthermore, the company was recognized in October as “Technology Company of the Year” from the Technology Alliance of Central New York.

Marquardt currently has more than 10,200 employees in 20 locations worldwide. Marquardt’s North American Headquarters, which is in Cazenovia, New York, features a state-of-the-art, 115,000 sq. ft. manufacturing facility. The company celebrated its 40th anniversary in Central New York last fall.

As a contract manufacturer, Marquardt offers product development support, product-testing, assembly and testing equipment realization, injection molding, electronic production, assembly production and lifecycle/supply chain support to its partners. The desire to help others and the drive to better the community is at the heart of every project and partnership the Marquardt team takes on.
