Enterasys Move to New Hampshire Will Bring 540 Jobs to Salem

Enterasys, a Siemens Enterprise Communications Company and a global provider of hardware, software and communication services, is relocating from Andover, Massachusetts to 9 Northeastern Industrial Drive in Salem, New Hampshire bringing 540 jobs to the Granite State.  While the L2/L3 Ethernet switching market has been growing around 3%, Enterasys grew in double digits through the first three quarters of 2011 according to recently published Dell’Oro market reports.

Less than an hour from Boston, Enterasys will occupy approximately 190,000 square feet in Salem with construction on the space beginning in April, 2012 and occupancy by January 2013.  The company also has plans to hire about 80 new employees once they are in New Hampshire.

“We have been aggressively growing our business over the past eight quarters,” said Chris Crowell, president and CEO of Enterasys.  “The move to New Hampshire will reduce our costs and allow us to increase our investment in strategic initiatives in R&D and in customer-facing areas.”

“This is the right building and location for our growing company,” Crowell added, “and New Hampshire’s low tax, business friendly attitude is a great match for our company’s long term growth”.

“Enterasys will be able to continue its growth trajectory in this move from Andover to Salem and the company will save on real estate costs and taxes by moving to New Hampshire,” said Michael Bergeron, Business Development Manager for the New Hampshire Division of Economic Development who worked with Enterasys.  “We are very excited about this big move.”

While other networking vendors have struggled over the recent quarters, Enterasys has outpaced its competition with consistent growth and record sales numbers. They have over 18,500 customers in 80-plus countries, over 1,000 new customers in the past year and new product developments.  For further information on the company, please visit www.enterasys.com or for information on the benefits of New Hampshire, call Michael Bergeron, New Hampshire Division of Economic Development at 603-271-2591.
