Pfeiffer Vacuum this month is breaking ground on a new facility for its North American headquarters.

The new, 27,000-square-foot building in Nashua, New Hampshire will house administration, sales, product management, marketing and customer care. The existing building will be converted to an all-service center where Pfeiffer will use state-of-the-art automated cleaning and test equipment.

Pfeiffer employs around 2,400 people worldwide and has more than 20 subsidiaries.
