Snap One has opened a new five-story co-headquarters on the Innovation Pointe Campus in Lehi, Utah, near Salt Lake City.
The 95,000-square-foot Innovation Center features an expanded number of state-of-the-art laboratories, test areas and training facilities that enable the company to accelerate the development of hardware and software products and services that can be envisioned, designed, prototyped, tested and delivered faster than ever before to the market.
“The original Draper, Utah, location was established in 2005 and was able to meet our Partners’ needs for almost 20 years. As our scale and pace of technological innovation accelerates, we have built upon this legacy to address the needs of the future,” said Snap One COO Jeff Dungan. “In designing this new co-headquarters, we have considered the long-term needs of our Partners and their customers and created an environment that internalizes the capabilities needed to accelerate our innovations.”
The new campus will function as a creative hub for a larger community that is attracting some of the biggest names in technology today, Dungan explained.
Innovation Pointe is in the heart of “Silicon Slopes,” Utah’s tech community, that is also home to many leading tech innovators, including Adobe, Pluralsight, Qualtrics, Ancestry, Entrata, Lucid, Pattern, Domo, Microsoft, Oracle, Skullcandy, Vivint and many others. The new Snap One co-headquarters will serve as the collaboration hub for some 500 Snap One area employees, one that complements the company’s other tech centers in Charlotte, N.C., and Serbia.
Specifically, the new capabilities housed within the Innovation Center include interoperability testing, Control4 automation testing, in-house digital product design, physical prototyping and engineering, software development, accelerated and highly accelerated product life testing, drop and regulatory testing, anechoic and RF chamber testing. The facility also contains a host of classrooms that enable the company to operate an on-site Snap One University that can train Partners to become more proficient in both Control4 and third-party product integration.
The new and expanded labs will enable the company to design and engineer better product experiences and security. Improved collaboration spaces will foster greater creativity and collaboration among team members in Utah and around the world. The space will also be used for engineering leadership and team member collaboration. The building itself has been designed to provide bright and welcoming working conditions that will enhance the productivity and well-being of everyone who works there.
“With the opening of this new co-headquarters, Partners can again be confident that Snap One is by their side, making their future needs our highest priority — thinking ahead about the resources and capabilities they will need to expand their business today and long into the future,” Dungan said.
