Barco Media and Entertainment announced plans for expansion at its major North American facility.

With this expansion, Barco will consolidate all BM&E operations into one facility for increased efficiency and cooperation among associates offering better service to its customers in North America. An additional 40,000 square feet at the company's Sacramento facility will allow for the relocation of its Logan, UT operations. The move is scheduled to be complete by December 1, 2005. The Logan facility will be closed as of March 31, 2006.

“Consolidation of our Utah and Sacramento operations will enable Barco to improve internal efficiency for the Media and Entertainment Division,” says Mike Jones, vice president, Barco Media and Entertainment, North America.

Completion of construction at the Sacramento facility will bring the total working space to just over 80,000 square feet, making it the North American headquarters for Barco Media, Events and Digital Cinema groups.
