LEBANON, N.H. — Hypertherm, a manufacturer of advanced cutting systems, celebrated the grand opening of its 160,000-square-foot manufacturing facility.

The additional manufacturing space is expected to help create up to 500 new jobs, including advanced machinist and engineering positions.

New Hampshire Gov. Maggie Hassan, Lebanon Mayor Georgia Tuttle, and Hypertherm’s Dick and Barbara Couch cut the ribbon outside the facility’s main entrance. Afterward, Hassan spoke about manufacturing and business growth in New Hampshire.

“I want more New Hampshire businesses to have the kind of success that Hypertherm has had in entering new markets in order to make New Hampshire a leader in selling our services and goods around the world,” Hassan said. “I believe New Hampshire is as well positioned as any state to lead the nation in innovative economic growth that will lift all of our people and define the 21st century. I applaud Hypertherm for being a true corporate citizen and a great example of the innovation and ingenuity that exists all throughout the Granite State.”

Guests toured the new facility, learning firsthand about the building’s many unique features. In keeping with Hypertherm’s core values, the building was designed with Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) principles to both lessen the building’s environmental impact and make the facility healthier for the Hypertherm associates who work there. It includes advanced research and development space, training classrooms, and engineering labs.
