MBX Systems Purchases Land for 2008 Facilities Expansion: Dramatic increase in server appliance business leads to acquisition of parcel next to current headquarters.

Share Article

In the past three years, MBX Systems has experienced dramatic growth in its business of manufacturing the hardware to turn products from independent software vendors and other organizations into server appliances. Now, just two years after moving into its current design and manufacturing facility in suburban Chicago, Illinois, the company has announced the purchase of an adjacent lot. Plans call for MBX to use the land to add between 10,000 and 20,000 square feet of manufacturing, quality testing, and warehousing space in 2008 to meet anticipated demand.

The market for server appliances overall is definitely growing

    MBX has grown to become one of the premier suppliers of server appliance hardware for security, streaming media, identity management, network management, and dozens of other applications since launching the business in 1995. Renowned for its outstanding customer service and attention to detail, the company has helped numerous software companies including Identity Engines, KACE, Quest Software, and Mailfoundry meet customer demands for products that are easy to install and manage.

"The market for server appliances overall is definitely growing," said Tom Crowley, CEO of MBX Systems. "I recently read that analyst firm IDC said that security content management appliances alone generated $584 million in factory revenues in 2006. As our current customers increase their volume and new customers come on, we want to be sure we're prepared to meet the demand. The new addition will help us meet that goal."

MBX is scheduled to break ground on the addition in early 2008. The company expects it to be fully operational later in the year.
