Intermec Marks Construction of New Cedar Rapids Facility

Intermec Technologies Corporation held a ground-breaking ceremony April 10 to formally mark the start of construction on a $12.5 million two-story, 81,000 square-foot facility in downtown Cedar Rapids.

The building, at 601 Third St. SE, will replace the company’s existing facility at 550 Second St. SE. Expected to be complete in June 2013, Intermec said the total investment of the project is $28 million.

Intermec develops, manufactures and integrates the most sophisticated tools for the fully coordinated supply chain. Core technologies include radio frequency identification (RFID), mobile computing and data collection systems, bar code printers and label media.  The new Cedar Rapids Technology Center will act as a world-class design and testing facility for Intermec.
