Vaisala recently broke ground on an expanded U.S. headquarters building as well as operations and R&Dcentre in Louisville, in Colorado, on the site of its current headquarters.

The company serves a variety of customers around the world with a comprehensive range of innovative observation and measurement products and services. Vaisala's National Lightning Detection Network (NLDN) and Global Lightning Dataset (GLD360) provide both companies and weather services with the most accurate lightning tracking data, detecting more than 21 million cloud-to-ground lightning flashes globally last year alone.

"Colorado is the perfect location for our U.S. headquarters," said President for Vaisala's U.S. subsidiary T.J. Mattimore. "In addition to enjoying the benefits of a highly skilled technical workforce and outstanding colleges and universities, we also benefit from the close proximity to key partners such as the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). This exciting construction project reflects a renewed commitment by Vaisala to the region."

Vaisala was founded in 1936 in Helsinki, Finland, and today employs more than 1,600 people worldwide and has customers in 150 countries. The company is recognized for unparalleled quality and accuracy and invests nearly 12 percent of net sales to research and development. Vaisala' products can be found in the most demanding applications around the world and beyond, and Vaisala's cutting-edge technology has also been selected to be on the Mars 2020 Rover. Vaisala's sensors were previously used on the Curiosity Rover in 2012. Vaisala hopes to complete construction in late 2019.
