Pfeiffer Vacuum has opened a brand-new 40,000 square foot facility in Indianapolis, Indiana, to better serve its North American customer base in the leak detection and high-vacuum technology space.

Featuring a CNC machine shop and modular assembly bays to support air and helium leak detection, as well as customer engineered vacuum systems, the site presents a whole array of offerings.

As part of this offering, the new application laboratory will be of great benefit to customers by offering in-person or interactive customer training and demonstrations.

With this, customers will be able to have parts tested on all Pfeiffer Vacuum leak detection technologies such as air, helium and hydrogen test methods and determine which is the best for their application.

Derek Izzi, General Manager of Pfeiffer Vacuum Indianapolis, said, “The Pfeiffer Vacuum Indianapolis division has been building instruments and complete leak detection systems for over 25 years.”

“This new state-of-the-art facility will allow us to support the growth of the automotive, pharmaceutical and semiconductor industry as well as other industries in North America. The central location of this new facility provides advantageous and cost-effective services and logistics throughout North America.”

“With our expanded in-house design, engineering expertise and decades of experience, we are very well positioned to help customers with their next custom vacuum system.”

Further to enhancing Pfeiffer Vacuum’s offering, the building is also energy conscious. To do this, the firm has installed high-quality, efficient rood insulation meaning energy consumption for heating and cooling will be significantly reduced.
