Muhlbauer International has opened a Smart Factory Competence Center that added 51,200 square feet to its US headquarters in Oakland Industrial Park in Newport News.

The new space adds a showroom for product demonstrations and training, as well as additional assembly capacity. The center began operation Feb. 20 and has already hosted a career and educational event.

Before the expansion, the German company was operating out of 33,100 square feet of office and assembly space.
