MARLBOROUGH PATCH—Allegro MicroSystems, a manufacturer and marketer of high-performance semiconductors, is moving its Massachusetts operating headquarters from Worcester to a new facility at 100 Crowley Drive in Marlborough, the company announced last week.
According to the announcement, the move serves as an overall expansion strategy to augment the company’s plan to grow through a focus on advanced technology, innovation and products.
“We are very excited to provide our employees with a contemporary atmosphere that will foster a collaborative environment between our R&D, Quality, Finance and Operations groups,” said Allegro President and Chief Executive Officer Ravi Vig in a statement. “We expect that this new location will become an asset to attract our prospective workforce and set the foundation for our company’s future growth.”
The company was founded at the Worcester facility as Sprague Electric in 1965. The company cites a better facility to suit its needs as the predominant reason for moving.
The new property, located at the interchange of I-290 and I-85, offers onsite food service, a fitness center and 13 miles of walking and biking trails near the campus.
Allegro plans to be up and running in the Marlborough facility by the end of the summer, said the announcement. The move is part of a larger restructuring that also includes a 15,000-square foot expansion at Allegro’s facility in Manchester, NH.
