DMP Expands R&D Capacity with New Kansas City Innovation Center
February 25, 2016
Lenexa, Kansas — Digital Monitoring Products (DMP) has expanded its research and development capacity and capabilities with the recent opening of the DMP Innovation Center in Lenexa, Kansas. Engineers and other security system development experts will be housed in the new facility, enhancing the company’s ability to develop and design industry-leading technology. The Lenexa facility is in addition to the engineering area located at the corporate headquarters in Springfield, Missouri. This expansion will enable DMP to meet the growing demand for its industry-leading array of intrusion, fire, access control, and network and cellular communication products.
“To continue our growth and achieve our goals we need to continue to expand our engineering and product development capability,” explained Rick Britton, DMP CEO. “This new facility, combined with an expansion of our current engineering department in Springfield, will give us the space we need to bring additional, new engineers onboard. This significantly expanded engineering capability means that DMP-authorized dealers and their customers can look forward to continued innovation and industry-leading products from DMP."
In addition to the newly opened Lenexa facility, DMP will also expand its current product research and development capacity with a doubling of its existing engineering department, adding 75,000 square feet of new space to its headquarters facility this spring. This represents the fifth major expansion at the company’s headquarters facility in Springfield since moving there in 2000. The last expansion was the 2011 addition of 35,000 square feet, providing added manufacturing and warehouse space.
The DMP Innovation Center is located at 15940 College Boulevard, Suite 100, Lenexa, KS. DMP is currently recruiting and holding interviews for a number of open engineering and developer positions at this location. Check dmp.com/careers to find the current list of openings.
