On August 20, 2019, Adaptas president and CEO Jay Ray, with more than 100 employees and guests, cut a ceremonial ribbon to officially open Adaptas Solutions’ new global headquarters in Palmer, Massachusetts.

With the opening, Adaptas expanded its global operations to a total of more than 100,000 square feet.

The new headquarters, featuring a 30,000-square-foot expansion, includes 20,000 square feet of new assembly manufacturing operations to support the company’s continued expansion into FDA-regulated devices.

“The expansion of our facility and operations is an important continuation of our growth strategy to supply innovative client products and services,” said Jay Ray, president and CEO of Adaptas.

Following the ribbon-cutting grand opening and tours of the new global headquarters for Adaptas, employees, friends, and associates retreated to a picnic luncheon with activities and games for all — from a dunk tank to darts, and beanbag toss to volleyball — all topped off with ice cream desert.

Moreover, with true community spirit in mind, all the festivities benefited the purchase of school supplies for the students of nearby Quarry Hill Community School of the Monson (Mass.) Public Schools District.
