WILLIAMSBURG, VA-New River Kinematics Inc. (NRK), a metrology software provider, has opened a new facility in Williamsburg, Virginia. The eight-acre campus consists of two custom designed buildings that offer 20,000 square feet of space. Included is 6,000 square feet of lab space specifically dedicated to the continued research and development of the company’s metrology and production application software.

“This custom facility creates an ideal environment for continuous improvement of our SpatialAnalyzer product,” says Joe Calkins, co-founder of NRK. “SA is now interfaced with over 100 hardware instruments and our new space will allow for many of the leading portable metrology instruments to be available at all times. We are encouraging all of our partners whose hardware uses SA to use our lab for customer demonstrations and have already received positive responses.”

In addition, NRK announces the hiring of three talented individuals as the company continues its growth of recent years. Richard Nelson, with many years of aerospace industry experience, and Todd Burch, who has significant metrology experience in ship building, will join NRK as application engineers. Also, James Gardner will bring to NRK his considerable experience as a sales executive. During the past decade, Gardner has successfully marketed both metrology hardware and software.
